The Louvre is a “super museum” that stands among the British Museum in London and the Met in New York as one of the three greatest art museums in the world. The Louvre has an enormous collection of more than 400,000 pieces and exhibits that span a period of more than 1,500 years. There are collections of works from the ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian civilizations, including da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa”, Antioch’s “Venus de Milo”, and “Winged Victory of Samothrace”, dubbed the “three treasures” of the museum. The famous films “Phantom of the Louvre” and “The Da Vinci Code” were also filmed here.
Louvre is a very big museums, in total it feels like there are 10 museums in one place! Make sure you plan your route well, as it is so big, to see everything maybe you will need about 3 days! So, I would suggest just research which arts that you would really want to see, so you will save alot of time. Outside the museum is really beautiful too. Don’t forget to visit this attraction if you go to Paris.
that the place where u can see monalisa .. in fact 90% of tourist that go to louvre just to a glance of the famous art piece. Anyway the louvre it self is a historic monument and world largest art musume . those on buget could just visit the site without entering the musume . one could always purchase ticket online to skip the que .. non peak is about 30min peak can be up to 2 hour qaiting time . prepaid ticket can by purchase via trip.com
One of the best Museum to visit in Paris! Massive, you need more than a day to actually get to see half of it. Whole area will take days! Painting, Sculptures and stories inside each piece will take you in ancient time with RICH historical and cultural time.
thisbhas got to be my favorite museum of all time. it is so big it takes all day to go through it. Although the Divinci exhibit was under work, there is stull so much to see and absorb culturally.
No matter you like arts or not, Louvre Museum is one the best hotspot you can not miss when you travel in Paris!
Fortunately, I am not misled by my predecessors. I would like to remind later friends that the Louvre has Japanese and Korean voice guides, but there is no Chinese. Download a "Louvre" APP beforehand. About twenty important exhibits have been listed for you. It's not difficult to get a picture. Friends who have booked tickets in advance, or from the "ticket" channel at the entrance of the pyramid, enter at a very fast speed. In my opinion, the first floor and the second floor of the Dinon exhibition area are places where heavyweight works are gathered, including "Mona Lisa" can be taken at will, and drinking water can also be brought in (which is very humanized in France). If you look rude for an hour or two, Sanbao's location is clearly marked in the museum. If you look closely, you'd better buy "Louvre Guide" (17 Euros) beforehand and do your homework well for your favorite works in a day or two, so that you can get twice the result with half the effort. I opened the door at nine o'clock and came out at eight o'clock in the evening. I didn't feel tired. Maybe I watched too much. It deserves to be the number one attraction in Paris. It is well-known and well-known.
To tell you the truth, the previous strategy has not been done carefully. The Louvre is really too big to be a museum that needs enough time to go through different categories. From the castle of the 12th century to the palace of the 16th century, and then to the Museum of the 19th century, the Louvre has reached its present scale after more than 800 years. It has 400,000 exhibits and a building area of more than 60,000 square meters. It is the oldest and largest museum in the world. Such a rich collection is both lucky and burdensome for tourists. Because no one can browse these works of art in a short time or even a few years. For most visitors, a visit to the Louvre is only a regret that has not been missed. People come here all the time, and the queues stand around the glass pyramid. As I stood in line, I carefully looked around and imagined how the gifted architect I. M. Pei, when he was designing and rebuilding the Louvre, thought of decorating the entrance to the Louvre with a modern minimalist glass pyramid. It is amazing that the old and the new are so perfectly integrated that they shine in the world. However, when I passed through the pyramid with the flow of people, and saw the light reflected through the glass like a phantom, as the moving escalator slowly descended into the palace, it seemed to understand something: the modern pyramid surrounded by the Louvre, like a magic tunnel of time and space, through which we could meet the ancient civilization. Visiting museums in the impression should be in the halls of Noda, slowly, quietly, thoughtfully, with eyes and every part of the works in mind or amazed or inspired. But when I walked into the Louvre, it wasn't all that spectacular. The libraries of famous works are crowded with people. In De Nong Guan, I drilled left and right among the crowd, and managed to squeeze into the nearest place to see only the side face of Mona Lisa. And the people around them, their eyes are free, their faces are impetuous, they know what they are, but they are unwilling to know what they are. It seems that I have come here through thousands of mountains and rivers only for those who have been here, and have passed through the magnificent palace, to see the three most representative exhibits of the Louvre: Venus, the Goddess of Victory, and Mona Lisa.
a must! be prepared for a few hours of walking. check ticket availability in July/August, as it is very busy and crowded so tou nay not get in on the day you want. The museum is great with a magnificent collection of art! difficult to mention all of them! I like Greek Sculpture section, of course- Venus, Mona Lisa, Nike.. Dutch painters, Italian painting..
The Louvre lies on the right bank of the Seine River from east to west, both sides of which are 690 meters long. The whole building is magnificent and magnificent. The pyramid building on the square in front of the palace is a new entrance for the modern reconstruction of the Louvre Museum. This is the masterpiece of Chinese architect Du Yiming. With such outstanding design, it has increased the service space and facilities of the Louvre Museum, optimized the tourists'visiting routes, and at the same time, the pyramid has added a new dazzling glory to the Louvre Museum. New landmarks in Paris. One of the treasures of the town hall is Broken Arm Venus. This is the world's well-known statue of the goddess of beautiful young women. Marble sculptures from ancient Greece are well proportioned and handsome. Although the right arm is incomplete, they still show the unique curvilinear beauty of women, which is graceful and charming. The Broken Arm Venus has shocked the whole world with its unique charm. Mona Lisa's smile is the second treasure of the town hall. This is Leonardo Da Vinci's masterpiece in 1503. The paintings are embedded in the walls of the hall in the middle of the second floor, which is obviously specially protected. Through the glass cover, you can clearly see this world-famous work. Leonardo Da Vinci described the inner of the characters through various pen strokes, making the Mona Lisa's smile seem subtle and unpredictable. The charming dream-like smile is called "mysterious smile" by many art historians. What's more wonderful is that no matter what angle you look at it, her gentle eyes always look at you with a smile, vivid and unusual, as if she were right beside you. The third treasure of the town hall is the statue of the goddess of victory. It is also a masterpiece of ancient Greek sculpture. Although the head and arms of the statue have been lost, it has not affected her artistic value at all. From any angle, viewers can see and feel the ambition of the Victory Goddess to fly. It is inconceivable that the nameless artists in ancient Greece carved the goddess'skirts as thin as cicada wings on marble. The clothes reveal the full and elastic body of the goddess. The texture of the dress and the sculpture of the pleats are amazing. There are countless art treasures in the Louvre, each of which has a very high artistic value. A bottle of sculpture can see the slightly uplifted meridians under the skin. A healthy and beautiful body makes people admire from the bottom of their hearts. An oil painting can make people feel the historical scenes, and a deep vision makes people think deeply.
This musuem is absolutely massive. Prepare to spend an entire day viewing everything here. The entire area is absolutely stunning. Many opportunities for great photos.
