Description

A Grand Old Dame of art museums, the Louvre's collection ranges from Mesopotamian, Egyptian, and Greek antiquities to masterpieces by artists such as da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Rembrandt. With 35,000 artworks it's a big and worthwhile commitment. NOTE: This ticket gets you skip the line access, but you must show your mobile voucher at a nearby newspaper stand ('kiosk') to receive an official paper ticket.

The Louvre is of the world’s largest and most authoritative museums. Its magnificent Classical silhouette is a familiar sight in the center of Paris. The collection focuses on two important eras in art history; Art and Craftwork from ancient civilizations (especially those that laid the foundation for Western art) and Western European Art from the Middle Ages to 1848 or so (later art can be found at the Musée d’Orsay).

This famous museum began as a palace, bearing the personal art collections of French kings. Art first went on display here under the initiative of the royal academy in 1725 but it wasn't until 1793 - during the French Revolution - that it opened as a public art gallery (not a coincidence).

Before too long the museum's already impressive collection was being bolstered by the spoils of Napoleon’s excursions around Europe. He transformed the Louvre's art collection into the biggest in the world - though some of that ill-gotten booty has been returned, some of it remains to this day.

APP & AUDIO ASSISTANCE The scale of this museum can be overwhelming - the south side facing the Seine is 700m long. But downloading self-guided tours from the website, or picking up a €5 multimedia guide, will help you navigate this huge labyrinth of artistic treasures.

VERMEER EXHIBITION The current Vermeer and Valentin exhibitions have been drawing enormous crowds. Musée du Louvre is implementing a system of timeslots to meet the unprecedented demand. Timeslots are subject to availability.

There were several newsstands on the square on Rue de Rivoli adjacent to the Louvre. I found the right one to pick up my ticket on second try. This ticket does not include audioguide, which you would still have to wait in line to rent inside the museum.
