You can spend an entire day racing through the halls of this immense museum and still feel that you only saw a fraction of its treasures. The Napoleon apartments are one of the best features, and the new Islamic art exhibit shouldn't be missed either.

One of the best art museums in the world. The Italian masters and great historical French paintings make this a must see for any art lover. Impossible to visit the entire collection in one day.

Is one of the world's largest museums, the most visited art museum in the world and a historic monument. A central landmark of Paris, France, it is located on the Right Bank of the Seine. Nearly 35,000 objects from prehistory to the 19th century are exhibited over an area of 60,600 square metres (652,300 square feet). The museum opened on 10 August 1793 with an exhibition of 537 paintings, the majority of the works being royal and confiscated church property.

One of the greatest museums in terms of its collections and treasures in the world, Musee du Louvre is a museum piece from the outside in. From the building itself to the contents within, there is so much history and stories to explore through its walls. Visiting the Louvre must be strategic especially if time is limited as days could easily be spent here marveling at its collection. Reason #2 why I heart Paris.

Aside from the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre is one of those places that you absolutely must visit when you're in Paris. Filled with some of the most beautiful art ever created, you will be exposed to paintings that you've heard about all your life. Da Vinci's "Mona Lisa" is a prime example; get ready to push your way through a crowd to get a glimpse of its splendor.
Although you may want to lose yourself in the paintings, make sure to visit the sculptures and the ancient antiquities.

Everyone told us to get to the museum before it opened and to bee-line for the Mona Lisa to avoid waiting for hours to see it. Well, we were in Paris in February and we neither got to the Louvre when it opened nor bee-lined to the Mona Lisa. When we finally reached it, there was a crowd but it did not take long to get a nice long look at the painting. So I say go in the off-season.
The Louvre was lovely, there's so much to see and something (or many things) for everyone. We had a great day wandering around.
Do enter through the subway, though - the lines are much shorter for security there.

For everyone who loves arts it's perfect. Most of the people go in there just for the Mona Lisa. But they will be disappointed in the end. It's just too touristy in my opinion

The sheer size of the Louvre is overwhelming. You could easily spend an entire day wandering about this massive museum and you still probably would miss a few things. On my visit we decided to do a speed walkthrough. I've seen many of these pieces over the years in my various art history classes and it was very exciting to see some of them in real life.
My advice is to pick a few key pieces you are interested in and head toward those. On the way you'll get to experience a whole lot more. If you don't have a plan like that it can be way too much and you'll end up wandering around all day.

if you had to choose one museum anywhere in the world - you have to go with The Louvre. The immensity of the collection is hard to convey and the sheer magnitude of the history of art within the hallowed halls is without rival. The classic works from the great masters all lined up - room after room of masterpieces.
