About Louvre Museum, Paris

The Musee du Louvre French Museum is known as the Louvre Museum in English, or The Louvre. It is one of the planet's biggest museums, and a noteworthy landmark.

With more than 8 million guests every year, the Louvre is the planet's most visited museum. The grand museum is housed in the Louvre Palace or the Palais du Louvre, which started as a stronghold inherent the late twelfth century under Philip II. Remainders of the stronghold are obvious in the root cellar of the gallery. Planning a trip to Paris must include a visit to The Musee du Louvre.

The building was enlarged commonly to house the present Louvre Palace. In 1682, Louis XIV picked the Palace of Versailles for his family dwelling, leaving the Louvre principally as a spot to showcase the illustrious gathering, and from 1692 it incorporated an accumulation of obsolescent sculpture. In 1692, the building was involved by the Academie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres and the Academie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture. In 1699 it held the first of an arrangement of salons. The Academie stayed at the Louvre for 100 years. During the French Revolution, the National Assembly announced that the Louvre ought to be utilized as an exhibition hall, in order to showcase the national cultural grandeur.

The entry to the museum is through the spectacular Louvre Pyramid which is a vast glass and metal pyramid, encompassed by three smaller pyramids. It is located in the principle patio Cour Napoléon of the Louvre Palace Palais du Louvre in Paris. Finished in 1989, it has turned into a point of interest of the city of Paris. The pyramid structure was built by Nicolet Chartrand Knoll Ltd. of Montreal (Pyramid structure / Design Consultant) and Rice Francis Ritchie (otherwise called RFR) of Paris (Pyramid Structure / Construction Phase).

The pyramid and the underground entryway underneath it were made on account of an arrangement of issues with the Louvre's unique principle door, which could no more handle the tremendous number of guests on an ordinary premise. Guests entering through the pyramid move into the extensive hall then re-rise into the principle Louvre structures. Numerous different storehouses have doubled this idea, generally eminently the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago.

Another remarkable architectural element you will notice within the palace museum complex is the two courtyards- the Cour Carree which means Square Courtyard and the Cour Napoleon which translates to Napoleon Courtyard.

Louvre Museum, Paris Reviews - Write a Review

  • Really a large museum. You could easily spend a day in here. The view outside the museum is beautiful especially in front of the glass pyramids. Highly recommend to book the ticket online as the queue can be very long sometimes. Also, please have a good meal before entering the museum as you don't want to starve while admiring all the art works. One of the largest museum in the world and you will have to spend hours to walk around. The best is to do your homework and check out what you want to see before going. You can also download the software to guide you around. Get a tour guide if possible as it can be fascinating, the stories that come behind the art is absolutely interesting than just purely staring at the paintings, especially for those not specialize in art. The latest news about the new $450 million painting is going to stay in Lourve will create even more crowd. So we shall see people crowding again just like the Mona Lisa. After the museum, take a walk at the garden in front and sit beside the pool. It is beautiful and peaceful. Good for Summer and Autumn season.

  • Simply unbelievable! Huge, massive, I don't even know what adjective to use to describe how big this place is. I spent the entire day here and didn't even cover a quarter of the museum. There is so much to see you would need to go back for two weeks to see it all and it still probably not enough time. Educational and interesting as can be. Not a good place for little kids; too big, busy, and boring for them. Everything here is pricey don't be alarmed. Entrance fee is actually very reasonable for such a famous museum €10, and some days it's actually free. If you have a specific interest in something (I was very interested in Egypt) I recommend the audio guide €5; it will teach you a lot of things. This museum is an absolute "Bucket List" item. It is crowded so be patient and don't take it personally if you run into people. Wear comfortable shoes or you'll regret it!

  • By far the best single museum I have ever been to in my life. Pace yourself, there is an extreme amount of art to see in here. I would personally plan out a route of what you want to see and just do that. It would take days to see everything and I haven't seen it all yet. It's 15€ at the door and 17€ online but online will give you priority access. It doesn't matter when you buy it online, you can do it right in the square. Pro tips: #1 Download the app AND any audio tours before you get here. There is free WiFi but it is sparse and cell service is difficult downstairs. That being said, save some money and use the audio tour on the app. It's 6€ for all of the audio forever. #2 Get here early, right when it opens if you can. There is a serene feeling to being in this museum when it's quiet. #3 There is reasonably priced food inside, but I personally would do breakfast at a nearby cafe and spend lunch only inside.

  • You need more than one day to really see and appreciate this amazing museum. Take the opportunity to utilize the audio tour. But if you enjoy your own pace that works too. This was a terrific to explore and learn something new. Don't forget to check out their in house cafeteria, the food is delicious and the coffee superb.

  • This place would take you a week or more to see and y truly appreciate all the treasures it holds. For a day trip, plan out the main pieces you have to see. The audio type are amazing and utilize GPS. Id recommend you go early and head straight to the Mona Lisa. This is a piece your can not miss. Truly amazing!!! Enjoy!
