  • One of the world’s most authoritative museums, the Louvre's collection ranges from arts and crafts of ancient civilizations right up to the middle of the 19th century
  • The Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo and Winged Victory are the three marquee names, but there are 35,000 artistic treasures inside, so block out plenty of time in your day for your visit
  • Bypass the purchase line. Take your voucher to the newspaper kiosk in nearby Place du Palais Royal, and exchange it for a paper ticket. Then walk right in!

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.

The skip the line was a good idea to use especially for the month of June. The lines were very long and the weather was brutally hot.
The ticket that I purchased was online. I couldn't use the ticket digitally, so I had to walk outside of the Louvre to pick it up. It was located in one of the newspaper stands across the street from the Louvre.

Easy to use the App and the pick up was in close proximity to our location!

It was so easy to pick up the tickets right outside the metro, right next to the Louvre.

We went to the Louvre and were willing to wait in line, but it was too hot and the line too long. We logged on to the Tiqet website and bought two tickets. We were able to redeem the tickets across the street in a local stand so we did not have to go back to the hotel to print out the ticket. We skipped the line in the blazing sun and had a great time at the Louvre.

On a busy Sunday there was no queue at the ticket kiosk or the dedicated entrance. So good.

It was good, except their is no clear signs where to go for skip the lines. Louvre has many different lines.

We picked up tickets with our e-mailed 17€ voucher at the news stand within 200 yards of the entrance. Because we didn't get a "timed" ticket, we still had to stand inline until getting through security about 9:15 am. on a Sunday morning. Once entering, we found where to purchase an 11:00 am English tour for 12€. This was wise to get an overview of the museum. Before the tour we followed the signs to Mona Lisa.

Skip the line was worth it, we still had to queue for about 5 minutes. However the people in the line next to us that didn't have tickets were queuing for about 30-40 minutes in the hot sun.
