It’s a great museum! But I think they would be better off if they just sold tickets as timed entry. The lines are ridiculous! Even once you get into the Château, the crowds are also ridiculous and you cannot stop and look at the exhibits. So many people taking so many pictures and not really looking at the exhibits them selves.

The entrance under the pyramid was a long wait so we tried the other one at the Carrousel. It was just as long but we didn't have to stand in the hot sun. The whole process seems quite unorganized. The wait is really to get through security. I enjoyed certain sections like the sculptures but the rest was so crowded you couldn't really stand and appreciate the Art. The map was difficult to decipher because it was not detailed enough. It was handy as a fan though because the museum was so hot inside. I enjoyed the Musee D'Orsay much much more.

See it even if you do an abbreviated tour. Be sure to also check out Napoleon’s apartments which is the opposite side of the art side (North side).

My husband and I booked a semi private tour of the Lourve with Babylon tours because the tour was limited to six people. Elena, our guide arrived on time. The other two people who had booked weren’t there. Elena tried everything to find them, couldn’t get them on their contact phone number, asked everyone at the meeting point, advised the tour office which also tried. She really made a big effort. But they didn’t turn up and couldn’t be contacted so the tour went ahead with just the two of us. It was excellent, very informative, We would have missed out on a lot if we had gone just with the audio or a big group.

Bought our tickets directly through the Louvre for an 11 am slot. Showed up at 11 and didn't stand in any lines. Once we got in we played art scavenger hunt with the family to keep things moving along with a list of 10 different must see pieces. Lots of fun for all! Definitely more time is needed to see all the beautiful art that exists in this world.
