Louvre Tickets

With Louvre Tickets visit the world’s largest and most diverse museum is both daunting and enlightening. A medieval fortress turned royal residence, the last century has seen this iconic attraction shrug off its former life, 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 Louvre tickets are a must-buy for all creatives and art enthusiasts. Spread 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.

Our tips for The Louvre

  • If in doubt, try the back entrance. Queues are constant at the Louvre’s Pyramid entrance. Head to the Louvre tickets 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 on your Louvre tours, 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 surround her make hanging around the Mona Lisa impossible.

  • During WW2, when Nazi occupation of Paris was imminent, French authorities cleared the museum of all it's prized artworks. Pieces were taken to various locations in the French countryside, stored, and hidden for the war's duration. Upon German occupation, the Nazi's used the location to store their own stolen art.
  • It would take all of 100 days to view every piece of art in there for just thirty seconds.
  • The attraction was first constructed as a fortress in the 12th century. The site was then rebuilt as a royal residence in the mid-16th century, finally transformed into a national museum in 1793.
