What to expect

The Louvre is home to more than half a million works. At any one time 35,000 of them are on display. This magnificent museum is the most important symbol of the cultural influence of France through the centuries. That's why so many millions of people flock to The Louvre from around the world, making it the most visited art museum on earth. On your visit, you will experience first hand the finest works of art created by the most celebrated artists. Leonardo's inscrutable 'Mona Lisa' is prime among them, the most famous painting there is.

You'll gasp at Delacroix's 'Liberty Leading the People', a landmark work that, in part, defines French culture. You will see the Venus de Milo and gaze in wonder at the Winged Victory of Samothrace. These astonishing works might be sufficient for any other museum's collection. At The Louvre, they are just the start. Turn a corner, look up and you will see a colourful abstract ceiling by Georges Braque. In the Egyptian galleries, there's one of the best preserved Egyptian Mummys in existence. A daring vision of naked women in a Turkish bath is depicted by Ingres.

There's Michelangelo's heart-breaking sculpture 'The Dying Slave'. The Louvre's collections cover all of the movements in the entire history of art, from ancient times to the nineteenth century. Quite simply, this is the greatest collection of art you'll ever see. Leonardo da Vinci, Vermeer, Rembrandt and so many more: all of their masterpieces await you in this extraordinary and beautiful place.

How you should use your personal pre-booked e-tickets to The Louvre

1. Proceed to the entrance that is reserved only for visitors who already have tickets, at the glass pyramid
2. Make sure you present your e-ticket no later than half an hour before your individual booked time *
3. Go through The Louvre's security check, which is designed for your safety
4. Now it's time to enjoy The Louvre's stunning permanent collection - as well as all of the museum's frequent temporary exhibitions (subject, naturally, to availability) throughout your day at The Louvre **

* It's important to remember that if you arrive too late for your individual access slot, as depicted on your e-ticket, the bearer of that e-ticket will be subject to the same terms of access to The Louvre - and waiting in the general queue - as all other visitors.

** Please do note that any exit from The Louvre is regarded as final. In short: if you leave The Louvre during your visit, you won't be allowed to enter the museum again on the same ticket.

Good to know

  • Your tickets will be sent to you - at the very latest - 48 hours after you make your reservation, and always 24 hours before the day and the time that you have reserved for your visit to The Louvre.
  • There's no need to print out your tickets because they will contain barcodes unique to you. Go directly to the turnstiles and scan your barcodes directly from your smartphone. It really is that easy. Of course, if you prefer to print out your e-tickets, that's possible too!
  • Your e-ticket additionally gives you free access - on the same day - to the fascinating National Eugène Delacroix Museum, dedicated to this most illustrious of French painters. The museum is located at 6 rue de Fürstenberg, 75006 Paris.
  • So that it can provide the best possible experience for all visitors, and the most relaxed experience for your visit, The Louvre cannot keep all of its many rooms open on each and every day. On Saturday and Sunday, however, The Louvre guarantees that all of its exhibition spaces will be open.
  • Entrance for all those under 18 and for EU residents who are under 26 is free of charge *.

* Those who qualify for free admission to The Louvre don't have to go to the ticket counter, if they are with someone who has a low-cost ticket, for example. Like those with pre-booked tickets, they can simply also enter via the entrance reserved for those with tickets so long as a valid identity document confirming their age and, in the case of EU residency, residential status, is presented.

The Louvre in just a few words

The Louvre is one of the biggest attractions for all visitors to Paris. There are often long queues outside. Booking a fast track e-ticket allows you to avoid all queues - and gain immediate entrance to The Louvre and its world-beating collections. Your pre-booked ticket allows you to enjoy the permanent collection at The Louvre as well as all of the temporary exhibitions. With Come To Paris, you can reserve your personal e-ticket in just a few clicks.

It really is that simple! The Louvre has an unbelievable 72,000 m² of exhibition space making it the largest art museum in the world. You won't be able to see everything - we estimate that if you spend just a minute in front of each exhibit, your visit would take 200 years! We'd advise that you decide in advance what you'd like to see and which of its eight departments you would like to spend time in. The Louvre offers a history of world art in one extraordinary place. You will always remember your visit - that we guarantee!

The entry with pre paid and printed ticket was seamless. Just security to go through. As always with the Louvre, busy at security checks - so a bit of a queue.
