Full description

Explore one of the world’s best art museums at your own pace with your skip-the-line ticket to the Louvre. Head straight to the security check before heading inside and viewing some of the world's finest art. See unmissable and iconic artwork such as the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo. Discover Renaissance masterpieces and ancient Egyptian relics, along with paintings from the 13th to 20th centuries, prints from the Royal Collection, and much more.

The museum first opened on August 10, 1793, exhibiting just 537 paintings. Despite closing in 1796 due to structural problems, it reopened in 1801 as the Musée Napoléon with a larger collection. Many works were seized and returned to their original owners after Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo.

During Louis XVIII and Charles X's reign and the Second French Empire, the collection gained 20,000 works. Now, there are 8 departments: Egyptian Antiquities; Near Eastern Antiquities; Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities; Islamic Art; Sculpture; Decorative Arts; Paintings; and Prints and Drawings.

We had our ticket timed at 2:30pm and we’re there around 2pm. No long line, check in was fast and easy. Just a tiny misunderstanding about the COVID papers my mom had printed and not on her phone. Everything was easy. We should’ve gone at an earlier time though because the Louvre is soooo huge you need at least a day to see half of it.

One needs to be careful when booking on line for tickets to famous attractions as there are many fakes out there but GetYourGuide was one of the good guys. A good price and a swift reply to my query when I was afraid the email with the code would not arrive in time for my visit to the Louvre. It arrived within minutes of my email and it meant that we were fast tracked inside the Louvre where we spent a wonderful afternoon among the most wonderful Art.

Great experience and a must do activity. Tickets enabled us to not stand in line. Just make sure the bar code prints out properly as my code was partially cut off so I had to visit the ticket office to have tickets reissued. Other than that, it was well worth the money spent!
