The world’s largest museum housing some of the most important art collections in history, the Louvre Museum is a must for anyone who is visiting Paris. As it tends to get very crowded, we opted to visit at night. It was a much more pleasant experience wandering through the galleries as there weren’t very many art enthusiasts or tourists that visit during this time.
Admission. €15 but free with Paris Pass.
Alternate Entrance. From the Metro, get off at Palais Royal Musée du Louvre. The underground shopping mall entrance of Le Carrousel du Louvre is the better option to use as the line here is never as long as the main entrance Pyramid line.
Best Time to Visit. Wednesdays and Fridays, between 18:00-21:45. Every first Saturday of each month the museum is open 18:00-21:45, admission is free.
