What people are saying about Palais du Louvre

We got in the museum 1.30 as we have booked! The museum is enormous but they give you map before you start to visit the exhibitions. In addition the museum has vestiaries for personal objects: umbrellas, jackets etc. It was perfect and I m satisfied cause I saw the 2 of 4 exhibitions

Easy access and great exhibitions. Huge queue to see the Mona Lisa but you could see if from the side

The scheduled entry was very useful, practically 2 minutes in a row and immediately inside the Louvre

It was so magnificent, amazing and satisfied to see some of the artworks.

Only issue not enough time because the place is so big lol
