    It is really something! I tried to take in as much as I could but I'll have to go back again to explore more! What I was most impressed by was how each section of the museum is so beautifully and expertly designed. Each section of the museum has its own feel to it. So incredible!

    Oye. This place is mammoth. One tip is that it's open on Wednesday and Friday until 9:45pm, if you feel like strolling without the massive crowds. You may want to download the free Rick Steves audio tour app before you head in. Don't do the rental. Waste of money. You can also buy tickets in advance while shopping at FNAC if you want to avoid the ticket line.

    Absolutely one of those must see before you die places. I mean, what can one really write about the Louvre? Go for yourself, see the Mona Lisa, judge the architectural appropriateness of the glass pyramid, and enjoy the art.

    You can't go to Paris and not hit up the Louvre as one of your destinations. It just way to monumental and internationally recognized to not say you've been here! You've seen the Mona Lisa.

    Not going to lie, the Mona Lisa is very anti-climactic. You'll see for yourself.

    Even if you visit the tip of the Lourve it is something! It's such a beautiful setting. I think I spent more time taking pictures at the tip than within the museum.

    It's definitely a full day event unless you speed through all the rooms.

    At least you should go just to say:

    " I went to Paris and saw the famous Lourve!"

    Highly recommend going at night!

    It takes me an hour just to cross from end to end of this huge palace now converted to a popular museum. The three most visited works of art are Winged victory of Samothrace, Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa. These three are what many of the visitors just visit but there are thousands of art pieces you can appreciate if you have time. In the recent years, the paintings mentioned in the Da Vinci code have been popular including the inverted pyramid at the exit.

    It is the Louvre and it is incredible. Just do your best to avoid the summer when there are so many tourists that even the Mona Lisa is frowning. My favorite time to visit is the winter.

    The world's most famous museum, the Louvre hosts the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory. You can spend years inside it without coming out. It feels like a showpiece of the entire book of history.

    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.

    There is too much to see in one day! Loved seeing the underground original structure from when it was a fortress. As for the Mona Lisa, I was disappointed. It's a small painting surrounded by tons of people taking pictures of it. Very difficult to get close to the painting.

    Very popular and consequently very crowded art gallery. If you want to see the Mona Lisa, consider going early or late

    In the middle of the very wide Napoleon courtyard is this stunning glass pyramid created by I.M.Pei. It is a striking architectural structure seen in the movie, "The Da Vinci Code".

    An old joke talks about "The Three Minute Louvre" but I advise taking 2 to 3 hours and coming back for as much time again often. World. Class. Museum. Audio tour at least a part. Better yet take a guided visit. Pei built the glass pyramid and I liked its added effect even before Dan Brown set a murder mystery in Paris' Louvre (DeVinci Code). History oozes out of the masonry and the art collection is breath taking.

    Visiting the Louvre is a requirement for every tourist. Stop in and enjoy the art but only stay as long as you are enjoying it. The Louvre is far too large to see it all. Discover what you like then seek out the other museums which may specialize in that area.

    The Louvre is one of the finest museums I have ever visited. The collection is incredible and the building itself is beautiful. If you want to avoid a long wait at the enterance arrive early.

    The Louvre isn't just Paris' most famous art museum, it's the most iconic museum in all of the world. While we babies of the 80's are hard pressed to imagine a Louvre without the glass pyramid entrance (Helloooo Davinci Code!), the structure remains wildly controversial among traditionalists in France even to this very day, almost 3 decades after construction began. And yes, before you ask, the Mona Lisa sits here in her own special wing. Smile!

Description

For museum lovers, this is the art mothership. Originally built as a 12th century fortress, it was turned into a royal palace in the 14th century. The latest addition is architect I.M. Pei's glass pyramid, a controversially modern update to the oh-so-traditional building that allows sunlight to filter to the underground lobby. There is enough art for a lifetime on display here; three wings and about 35,000 pieces, to be exact. Look for the crowds of visitors to steal a glimpse at a much-smaller-in-real-life Mona Lisa hiding behind them.
