    It was a great visit! We had a lot of fun during the 3 hours we spent on our visit to the museum and we saw a lot of great sculptures and paintings. Definitely recommended to buy the tickets in advance so you have to wait less time at the entrance queue and bring some food of your own so when you finish your visit you can have something to eat (if you don’t want to spend any money in the cafeteria).

    Our family of seven (ages 8 to 69) planned in advance and bought tickets to the “My First Louvre” private tour led by museum staff, directly from the Louvre website. The 90-minute tours are Saturdays and Sundays at 11 o’clock. It’s just a brief overview to get you started. I was most impressed by the below ground viewing of elements of the castle remains on which the Louvre was built. Tour included a history of the museum before we set off. Make sure you allow plenty of time to find the starting place of the tour within the museum. It took us awhile to find where to enter the museum, and then to find our way to the location to pick up our headsets and the room to wait. So allow at least 30 minutes. Trust me! A stop to view the Mona Lisa is included, but there is a Disneyland-type queue to get close enough to snap a photo. We enjoyed our brief taste of the museum very much. We also enjoyed that there were places in the pyramid section to purchase beverages and baguette sandwiches.

    Amazing place! And also an amazing palace! The most famous tourist place in the world has various surprises for visitors. You’ll be impressed by the view from the balcony of Cafe. Don’t even try to see all of the expositions for one day. Be ready to fight against crowds near the Mona Lisa. Try to find your own secret of that place. Go for it!

    You probably need five weeks to cover the immense Materials in here. It’s incredible collection. I highly recommend at least one full day and to get the audio guide. Start with the masterpiece trial to get a good introduction. Left the museum by buying a guidebook that I’m still perusing at this point. Total mind blowing experience.

    What can you say… It’s the Louvre. Fantastic but very large museum. Do some homework before you arrive to get the most out of the visit. The staff is very helpful and we were able to get through a see most of what we wanted to see. We tried a later in the afternoon time to beat the crowds, but the Mona Lisa had a large line to get in front of it. I think being there on the opening hour may be the best or definitely during a slower tourist season.

    One of my favorite museums in Paris for the temporary and regular exhibitions. The diversity of the collections is simply impressive. Another interesting side is the architecture of the museum. Last and not least the unique restaurant which is a regular step in every visit I do to this place. The view is stunning, the interior is so rich (ceilings, walls,…). I recommend this place with no hesitation!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Ghassan Yammine (10 months ago)
    Wonderful museum holding paintings, sculptures, and creations of world renowned artists. Definitely don’t miss it if you’re in Paris.

    Get the tickets online or Paris Museum pass to skip the long line. We went on a Thursday afternoon and it was way less crowded than the Louvre and it felt easier to stroll the museum more leisurely. Much smaller than the Louvre. We spent around 2 and a half hours here and enjoyed it a lot.

    My #1 museum in the world. I’ve been to this museum twice only and can’t wait to go back again. I am a big fan of impressionism and this place is heaven for someone like me. This museum taught me lots of great painters and their beautiful paintings. Every time I go to Louvre, I feel like overwhelmed but this place just makes me happy. They also have a great French fine restaurant in the museum. You can have a great view of Paris from this museum. Don’t miss the chance to take beautiful photos at this museum!

    What an amazing museum. The architecture of the railroad station is a stunning setting for a “modern art” gallery. We were visiting on a Sunday so we started early at 10am. By midday the place was getting pretty busy. I’m glad we got the place to Preakness for a couple of hours. The temporary exhibit about the early years of cinema was really eye opening and beautifully presented. I’ve attached some photos of my favourite pieces.

    Amazing museum and I don’t really like museums.

    Recommend a skip the line, timed entry. The queue otherwise is long and in the sun.

    Set in an old train station, the entrance is worth it just to see the interior. Skip to the 5th floor and see some one of the most amazing collections of impressionist and post-impressionist art in the world.

    It does get crowded and it is a little warm, but worth it in my opinion.

    Superb view day & night!
    The view from the ground is very good. There is no need to go up for capturing a picture, but it’s good to enjoy taking a walk to the tower. Best to take a ticket online(I prefer walking till the second level and coming down(€10)). The city view from the second level is more beautiful and clear than from the top level. Also we are here to see the tower, not the city view! Walking till the second level is a little hard task, so if you are capable of only walking, otherwise take the lift.

    Paris is an incredible experience with innumerable museums, parks, restaurants and beautiful sites but the Eiffel Tower is one of the most interesting places to visit.
    The view from the top is breathtaking but it’s not the only thing to enjoy.
    Around the tower we can find hundreds of souvenirs sellers, people from all parts of the world, restaurants, street artists and many other surprises. There is a flow of energy which makes the visit a remarkable experience.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Wagner Castro (4 months ago)
    Wow wow wow!! Spectacular! An iconic monument! It’s a wonderful experience holding hands of your loved one and walking by the Eiffel Tower in ‘city of love’.
    Equally good to watch both day & night. I personally liked the night view especially the glitter light effect of the tower that come on every 30minutes! The queue to access the monument is not worth the wait unless you really want to go in. It is indeed an unforgettable experience you must not miss out! 100% recommended!!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Shamil Lateef (a month ago)
    The person who changed the iconic Paris, Mr Eiffel and his crazy creation Eiffel Tower ages ago… this monument brings people all around the world every single day for many years ago. One of the tallest buildings in the world offers stunning views across Paris and breath taking impressions. No words to describe the experience, simply needs to visit it at least in your live.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Vladimir Velikov (2 months ago)
    It’s absolutely stunning both at night and during the day !! A great place to visit,an iconic tower that always will blow your mind.
    Definitely a place you do not want to miss at all, beware of the hagglers while you are there. There’s a lot of them around trying too sell anything they can, majority of them won’t leave you alone either. I highly recommend visiting with someone at night.
    I highly recommend to go and visit France , it’s an absolutely country with such beautiful buildings! (In love with France❤)

    Amazing! This is a great experience. If you get the chance do visit. There is a free audio tour which you can download as an app. The rooms and the content are fabulous. Yes, it’s very popular. There are timed tickets for the Palace itself which are very good value. The grounds do require a lot of walking but you can hire a buggy. The fountains are beautiful and if you can do walk down to the boating lake. A good number of cafes and restaurants at the bottom of the gardens. We returned in the evening to see the water fountains display and fireworks. Over 3 hours of entertainment. My advice is to download the free map so you can see all the displays. You can bring a picnic for the evening.

    All time favorite tourist attraction while visiting Paris. Highly recommend giving yourself a few hours to visit. You still may not have enough time to see everything. The palace is stunning. Marie Antoinette was living in opulence. The palace is massive, but the gardens go on for miles.

    PRO TIP- Rent the golf cart to visit the gardens. Better yet, rent a bike. The golf carts can only stay on their assigned path. If you venture off path, the golf cart will turn off.
    *Marie Antoinette’s cottage house is not open. You can only view the outside.

    ✭✭✭✭✭ By MS O (a week ago)
    Legendary place, you need at least 4-5 hours to spend instead it. The palace itself is breathtaking but better to go around it with a guide to tell the details about everything. The gardens are amazing. Better to rent a golf cart to go around it. Be aware that you rent it at the beginning of the garden there is usually waiting time and you need a driving license.
    If you want to go for a boat ride then you definitely need more time
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By M Marji (6 months ago)
    We really enjoyed our tour here. It was guided and it was very interesting to learn about the history of this beautifully decorated place. Do the skip the line tickets if you do not have a guide. You can also access Versailles by the high speed train from Paris… it takes about 12 minutes. And then possibly a 20 minute walk from there? Our group was on bikes and we arrived quickly
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Emily Anderson (3 months ago)
    A must-visit in Paris. Highly recommend purchasing tickets ahead and for opening hour. We did the self guided tour and were fine. Everything you could see was impressive. Be prepared for a lot of walking.

    We rented the electric golf cart to tour the gardens, glad we did, and it does take about an hour.

    My favourite museum. A bubble of peace in the middle of the city.
    We stopped in November to see the Black Indians and Kimono exhibits. Kinda wish the explanations were all translated to English and not only the curators notes. Many of the captions are only in French 🙁
    You might want to book your tickets before dropping by on weekends. We went on Tuesday – no queue at all.

    I visited only the garden and it blew me away. It’s like a little hidden piece of wilderness in an urban surrounding. At first you see the fence on the outside that looks almost like a part of the nature, a ditch with water and reeds and than you enter the garden up a little hill and the whole new world is opening up. Utmost beautiful setting with some light sticks that gave the space unrealistic, surreal feeling. You walk across curvy paths and there are hidden little oases everywhere.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By trajnaninanena (3 months ago)
    Very cool museum with tons and tons of native artifacts from all over the world. Outfits, weapons, masks, totems, statues, etc. If you’re not interested in native peoples, don’t come here because there is not any variety in the exhibits beyond worldly native peoples. Outside the museum there is a very nice forest/garden area with walking paths and seating as well, which is free to access.
    ✭✭✭✭ By Alex Johnston (6 months ago)
    What a beautiful display of art and culture from the indigenous people around the world. I love not chasing famous spots and discovering gems like this one instead. With 12 euro tickets and people under 25 going free it’s a great place to visit for the budget traveler.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Adriana Y (5 months ago)
    Most atmospheric Museum in Paris! Wide and varied collection of native ( not primitive at all) Art. Savage and powerful insight into the art of the varied primordial cultures of the world. The positive and negative energies of the human condition are represented here in a condensed and intense exhibition.
