Exceptionally busy place. We enjoyed it but it was probably a bad idea taking our 2 and 5 year old daughters. The crowd around the Mona Lisa was a sight to behold!

Long queues to get in, about an hour for us. Don't bother with the audio option unless you are good with a Nintendo. It was very complicated to work and I gave up after 10 mins. Very crowded with a lot of ill-mannered tourists who just push and shove. It was nice to see the Mona Lisa and I'm glad I visited but wouldn't go again.

It is a maze. One section leads you to another and you walk around knowing full well you have no idea how you got where you got. But at every corner there is something for the eye to admire and for the mind to digest.
Be prepared for lineups. Be prepared to spend a whole day. Be prepared to be share your personal space with an enthusiastic crowd who want to take selfies with every famous piece of art. Be prepared to wait for your turn to get a closer look at the Monna Lisa, and you get closer to the front, be prepared to be pushed aside by someone more zealous than yourself.
My stamina allowed me to see only a small portion of the Museum, but what I saw was quite impressive.
If the river Seine is the veins of Paris, the Louvre is its heart.

Museum is big and have very nice collection. Although they should return Egyptian things to Egyptian Museum. Mona Lisa room is always crowded. One day is not enough to visit it.

This was an incredible experience. We paid extra for audio guides which was hard to use at first but it was great as an overview for each exhibit we saw. We only scratched the surface as went for just over two hours. The queues looked long but they went really quickly. Tip: if you need the toilet, go in one of the exhibit bathrooms as the queue in the main atrium was enormous.
