The Musée du Louvre receives over 10 million visitors every year, making it the most visited art museum in the world. Most visitors flock to see Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, arguably the most famous painting in existence, but you also shouldn’t miss the stunning Venus de Milo and the countless other masterpieces that fill up the galleries. You can book tickets and guided tours of the Louvre online to avoid waiting in long lines on the day.

4 Tips for Visiting the Louvre Museum

The Louvre's Famous Pyramid
The Louvre: A Tourist MagnetWith 10 million people visiting every year, the Louvre doesn’t really have any days that aren’t busy! Bearing that in mind, it’s highly recommended to buy your tickets in advance to skip the long lines at the ticket office. During the peak tourist season, it’s even worth buying the slightly more expensive tickets that guarantee you entry at a fixed time so that you can skip all the lines.
The Main Entrance
Pick Your Entrance CarefullyThe Louvre’s glass pyramid in the Carrousel du Louvre is instantly recognizable and marks the main entrance. That’s where the ticket lines are also the longest! If you’ve booked your tickets online then you can use another entrance in the underground shopping arcade beneath the building. Meanwhile, registered groups should use the entrance at the Porte des Lions.
Free EntryYes, you read that right: from 6 pm on the first Saturday of every month, you can visit the Louvre free of charge. Just remember that it might be busier than normal due to people taking advantage of the freebie. Meanwhile, EU citizens under the age of 25 should remember to bring their passport or another form of ID, since they are always entitled to free entry.
Plan Your RouteThe museum’s huge collection of galleries displays about 35,000 pieces of art at any one time, so it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to see everything in one visit. If you’re not taking a guided tour then you might want to look up the different galleries on a map before visiting so that you can decide what you really want to see. You might want to skip some collections entirely in order to see the things you find most interesting.

What’s the best time to visit the Louvre?

It’s best to visit the Louvre either immediately after it opens in the morning or in the early evening after most tourists leave for the day. It’s also quieter on weekdays than it is on weekends. Late afternoons or early evenings on Wednesdays are one of the best times to visit since the museum stays extra open late, something that not all visitors realize. Read more.

Where can I find the Mona Lisa?

Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous painting, also known as La Gioconda, can be found in the Italian Painting Collection in the Denon Wing, on the first floor. During extremely busy periods, access to the painting may be restricted to avoid the risk of damaging the painting. Read more.

Is the Louvre accessible to disabled visitors?

The two entrances by the pyramid and the underground entrance via Galerie du Carrousel are accessible by wheelchair users. There are also several lifts to help visitors using wheelchairs or those with limited mobility move between all the floors of the museum - their exact positions can be found on maps of the museum. Manual wheelchairs and folding stools can be borrowed at the museum for no extra charge.
