Saving time by buying your tickets online is always a good idea.
The Pyramid entrance is not the only one for those without tickets, but always the one with the biggest queue. Try to enter the museum from the Carrousel du Louvre (underground shopping mall) or from the “Porte de Lions” entrance (closed on Fridays and in the evening, but when it’s open - there’s never a queue).
As Louvre is closed on Tuesday, Wednesday mornings see a higher flow of visitors. The best days to visit Louvre are Mondays and Thursdays.
In low season (from October to March), the first Sunday of each month is free: avoid it, it’s packed of tourists!
- Online tickets give direct access to the Louvre by the Passage Richelieu, without getting stuck in a queue.
- You can reserve your ticket here.
Ticket bought on-site: 15€
