Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Rembrandt, oh my! A visit to one of the world’s largest and most diverse museums is both daunting and enlightening. A medieval fortress turned royal residence, the last century has seen the Musée du Louvre shrug off its former lives, standing proud as a mecca for culture, history, and the arts. With finds dating from the prehistoric to the Romantic and everything in between, the Musée du Louvre is the ultimate playground for creatives and art enthusiasts. Rambling across four levels, three wings and through delightful alfresco courtyards, this former royal palace is a site to see in itself; it’s interiors toeing the line between the royal Renaissance-style and the clean lines of contemporary design. Modern updates like the museum’s famous glass pyramid just add to this site’s unique character that continues to draw visitors from far and wide.

  • Our tips for The Louvre

    Our tips for The Louvre
    • If in doubt, try the back entrance. Queues are constant at the Louvre’s Pyramid entrance. Head to the entrances in the Carousel du Louvre shopping centre and the Passage Richelieu (open daily except on Tuesdays) for quicker admission.
    • Have a game plan. There’s more than 35,000 artworks showcased in the Louvre. Make sure you map out the sections you really want to see, so you don’t miss out on anything.
    • There’s more to the Louvre than the Mona Lisa. Find her, snap her, and move on. There’s plenty to see at this grand museum, and the constant throng of crowds and selfie sticks that surrounding her make hanging around the Mona Lisa somewhat impossible.

    Best Time To Visit The world’s largest museum is perpetually booming, with crowds reaching their peak in the summer months of June to September. December and January promises a quieter Louvre, while Wednesday or Thursday afternoons – when the museum stays open until 9.45pm – also sees crowds lessen.
    Getting There With the city’s well-connected and budget-friendly transport, getting to the Louvre couldn’t be easier. The Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre metro station on line 1 drops travellers within walking distance of the museum, while many buses service the area. Taxi ranks and parking stations mean travelling by car is a viable option also.
    Money Saving Tips Strapped for cash? Don’t fret, during the off-season of October to March, admission to the Louvre is free on the first Sunday of each month. An all-inclusive Paris Pass combining transport and top attractions is also a great way to get extra bang for your buck.
