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 ticket 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 are 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.
  • Save money. During the off-season of October to March, The Louvre museum tours have free admission! On the first Sunday of each month, there are no entrance fees for this legendary landmark.

With finds dating from prehistoric to the Romantic and everything in between, the Louvre is a cultural hub that got finally transformed into a national museum in 1793. In the biggest museum in the world, it would take of 100 days to view every piece of art in there for just thirty seconds. Leonardo Da Vinci’s Monalisa is housed in its largest room for admirers.

Over 66% of the art in the museum is created by French local artists. During WW2, when the Nazi occupation of Paris was imminent, French authorities cleared the museum of all its prized artworks. Pieces were taken to various locations in the French countryside, stored, and hidden for the war's duration. Upon German occupation, the Nazis used the location to store their own stolen art.
