The Louvre is an absolute treasure trove. The paintings, sculpture, antiquities, furniture, costumes , jewels and the buildings are simply amazing. One could spend an entire year visiting this museum and never see all that there is to offer, it would take years to see everything.
I have had the good fortune as a French teacher in New Jersey ( U.S.A. ) about 10 times. to visit The Louvre at least 24 times and need to return again and again.

Why do most people visit Musee du Louvre? Answer: to see the original Mona Lisa, the most revered painting in the world. What actually happens when you get to the Mona Lisa? Answer: you can't see it, at least not without binoculars. Perhaps because it is one of the most valuable works of art in the world, the museum has decided that, while they will gladly take your entrance money (EUR 17.50/pp), they don't actually want you to SEE the Mona Lisa and so instead they have added a 20ft+ distance between admirers and La Gioconda. After patiently inching my way to the front of the multiple rows of tourists, and thankfully having brought our binoculars, to my greatest surprise, the painting is set behind poor viewing quality glass you cannot see any detail in the brush strokes nor the nuances of that cheeky smile in the painting. So while I ‘saw’ the painting, I didn’t see its magic. Moving on to see other works of art, and after spending 2 ½ hours inside the Louvre going up and down, down and around, getting lost a couple of times, and ended up exhausted I should have listened to the advice to skip it altogether and instead visit Musee d’Orsay.

One of the highlights of our trip.The building itself is an absolute wonder it’s simply breathtaking.We paid €15 each and it’s well worth it.To visit all 950-odd rooms would take a full day at least.We just concentrated on the French/Italian/Spanish and British Art and were still in there a good few hours!
Highly recommend!

The Louvre is massive and there is now way you can see it all in one visit. My suggestion is to decide what you definately want to see and the head for those. Anything else you see is a bonus. We entered by the main entrance under the pyramid to a vast visitors area that then lead to an entrance to the museum. There are other entrances but, wanting to do the tourist thing, I opted for iconic way in. Coming out if the museum there is a further big underground complex of shops and eateries.

The building is rather large with a confusing floor plan and a lot of empty space. The staff is helpful when you ask them, but there are a lot of missing up-to-date written information around the place. The complete organisation should be better.
