The most amazing art collection we have ever seen. The Baroque in particular was breathtaking. Could not recommend enough. Definitely be there thirty minutes before the said time. You skip the ticket line but need to wait at least thirty minutes to get into the building. Also bring an umbrella in case it is really sunny or has a chance of rain.

A fantastic place to visit and well worth the cost. It wasn’t what I was expecting…it was so much better. The queues were long to get in despite having a ticket and it takes a while to get through security but overall a great experience.

It seems the air-conditioner was turned off as it is in September. It was very hot inside the building apart from some rooms with old masterpieces.

It was great. We went to Louvre museum early and the lines weren’t really that bad.

Wonderful Museum. Pre-buy your tickets! The line is very big to buy them same day.
