Porte des Lions & Carousels entrance to Louvre

Dear all,

I plan to go to Louvre when it is opening at 9am on Monday. My question is are these entrances (Porte des Lions and Carousels) open at that time? At these entrance, I have to buy the tickets from the mobile machine?

Thank you.

The Porte des Lions sometimes seems to open erratically. I suspect they only open it when the other entrances are overloaded. The entrance through the Carrousel du Louvre mall is open every day.

We got to carrousel entrance at 8.15.. By 8:30 hordes of tourist piled in. So go there early and run off to the Mona Lisa as soon as you get in which frees up the rest of the day from the hordes!
