Full description

Explore the Louvre at your own pace with a timed-entrance ticket, ensuring you get in within 30 minutes. 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.

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. 

The collection has since 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.

I would advise getting this ticket if you want to visit the Louvre at all. The crowds were enormous and getting in would delay you two to three hours getting in. It was less than 10 minutes with this ticket. I went with my adult son but I had to list going with a teen even though he is over 30.

So the thing to know about this ticket is that you don't have to download the QR code before you go in, but you do need it to enter the wing of the museum you want to visit. This is important because wifi is terrible inside the museum--and the link to DL the actual tickets is easy to miss--caused us some panic, but we figured it out and got in and the Mona Lisa is beautiful!

Fantastic..... to see many works of art and sculpture in one museum was so exhilerating.. we especially liked the viewing of the Mona Lisa .. The crown jewels of the French Monachy and their personal belongins were also a highlight.. well worth a visit... the ticket we bought gained us a swift entry to the museum and the entry process was very well executed ( pardon the pun ) will defintly recommend ..
