In addition to being one of the best and largest art museums in the world, the Louvre is also one of the best. If you've ever attempted to visit it on your own, you know how difficult it can be to navigate, see what you want to see and keep from collapsing beneath the weight of so many masterpieces housed under one roof.

Things to do at Louvre Museum:

  • Navigate the halls

Discover the Louvre Museum's treasures by making your way around its halls. Regardless of the artist's century of origin, the Louvre displays the most exquisite works of art from many eras. As much as we would like to boast that we can see the entire collection in one visit, there are only 35,000 of the 380,000 artifacts in the collection that are now on exhibit. You can choose the style, the artist, or the era that most accurately describes you from among the 35.000 'chefs d'oeuvre' displayed.
