What a marvelous museum to visit. Of course there are the Mona Lisa and the Venus of Milo, but it holds so much more. Great collection of Italian and Spanish painters and the Egyptian collection is also absolutely excellent. Be sure to visit and be sure to allocate an appropriate amount of time!!!Recommended for:

I came to the Louvre during student night, which I highly recommend as the lines were a lot shorter and the building far less crowded.
This museum truly is worth visiting, though it is difficult to see everything without spending an entire day here (if it's rainy and you feel like sacrificing a day walking around Paris, go for it). While the Mona Lisa is impressive and all that its reputation lives up to, I was most fascinated by the recreation of Napoleon's rooms (especially his tiny throne!) and the hall of sculptures. Plus the architecture of the museum itself is a work of art and worth paying attention to.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

World's finest museum. It is always crowded, but there is a clear reason. You can easily spend a full day here. The collection is amazing. Make sure to have enough time in the museum. Check the opening schedule beforehand; sometimes they close early.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

I've been here twice, but that has not been nearly enough to really soak in the treasures and experience of this place. If you have a day here, it will not be enough. If you have a week here, it will still not be enough.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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!Recommended for:

Breakfast at Cafe Marly at the arcade of the Richelieu wing has become a tradition of sorts when we visit the Louvre. We usually arrive early in the morning before the crowds get there to enjoy an unobstructed view of the the pyramids. There is no better way to prepare ourselves mentally for the splendours of art and culture that await us in the museum.Recommended for:

Some people consider the Pyramid to be the great eye sore of Paris. While it's not congruent with the Louvre, it does add an interesting and eye catching element to the mix. The museum itself is impressive and is probably one of the grandest museums in the world. One highlight is to check out Napoleon Bonaparte's grand apartment; it's attached to the museum.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

Busy and hectic it still is a great art museum to visit. The Mona Lisa is much smaller than you think and almost harder to get near with all of the other tourists crowding around. Don't try and see everything, you can't and it would take several days anyway. One of the great museums, don't miss it.

The Louvre has over thirty thousand artistic items on display, and they've been on display since the Louvre was opened to the public in 1793. I have added a photo of my wife in front of the the headless Greek sculpture, "Winged-Victory" which is thought to have been sculpted in two-hundred B.C.

Immense and impressive. While the Louvre can be done in a full day, it's less exhausting to break it up. I recommend buying a Paris Museum multi-day pass, which gives access to the Louvre and many other attractions around Paris for a reasonable rate. With the pass you can also use the Louvre's group tours entrance (on the side, not through the pyramid) which always has shorter and sometimes non-existent lines.Recommended for:

GIANT! Louvre is awesome, with soooo many art pieces that you can't see everytinhg. We stayed all morning walking (fast) and can't see like 1/4 from all museum. Its a place that you would need 2 days to see everything! That pieces are awesome and well conservated. But has many many persons there.
