Couldn't go in as they don't sell tickets with Euro cash, unlike Eiffell Tower! We refused to book online without knowing £-€ exchange rates etc! Worth seeing the quadrangle anyway and we spent the €30 on batobus boat trips on the Seine river!

We did a late entry walk with "Walks - Europe". We had just arrived from Seattle and were jetlagged, but on our feet! Violet was a fantastic tour guide - funny, real and knew so much! Thanks!

Get a guide. It's worth it. So many things to see. Spend at least 3 hours if possible. Take lots of pictures. Take your time and explore

The Louvre is just a place you have to visit when in Paris. You can't see it all in one visit so see your favorites (Vermeer, Italian Renaissance) and try a new section next time. For this visit, the room with jewels was open and they were gorgeous.

We had a better time than expected I believe due to the following ,
# Have a plan or else it’s overwhelming. We used the Rick Steves app and it was good. Got to see a lot of major things in an organized way with minimal frustration.
# Order tickets ahead of time. They will let you in 30 minutes before your ticketed time. We did not get in early but we did get in on time
# Don’t plan on eating on site. We could not get a table so we ate outside the museum and had a wonderful lunch

Get ticket for 9 AM Monday morning if possible, be in line by 8:45 at latest. Most people's complaints were that main attractions were too crowded; by doing this and skipping audio guides, we went straight for the Mona Lisa and there were only ~50 people when we got there.

We booked the Louvre Tour with Kids through Context Travel and it was the highlight of our 10 day trip to London and Paris.

Our tour guide, Pablo, was on the next level. He engaged everyone in our group of 6 from my 77 year old mother down to my 11 year old. (My 15 year old who has never been that interested in art said he could have spent 40 hours with Pablo.)

Pablo spent 2.5 hours with us and went deep on ~7 things. We learned about the Louvre building including interesting things about the original fortress, Henri’s love letter to Diana, a fascinating sculpture Napoleon procured from Italy (no spoilers), Winged Victory, The Gallérie D”Appollon, da Vinci’s The Virgin of the Rocks, Mantegna’s crucifixion, and of course the Mona Lisa. We also spent time at Ghirlandaio’ Old man and his grandson and Pablo’s interpretation brought us to tears.

That said, the tears were limited because Pablo had great energy (but not manic) and a fabulous sense of humor. He is a true educator and roped each of the six of us in different ways, quickly assessing our learning style and interests. This was amazing since my 11, 14, and 17 year old all learn so differently.

I booked this trip through contexttravel.com a week before we went. Pablo was on time and precisely where the booking said he would be.

The Louvre is so crowded nowadays. It was such a privilege to have such a special guide help us navigate and “go deep” on things versus trying to do it all. It was an outstanding experience.

I would recommend bringing a bottle of water with you.

I recommend that you focus your visit on the areas of your greatest interest as this museum is enormous. And I also recommend that you avoid the greatest hits as those areas are swamped with group tours. This is a classic.

Do not come in here. There are people waiting to get in everywhere. And to get to know to every place of museum, just watch on YouTube.
