Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Ticket
Spend a day exploring some of the world’s great art with skip-the-line admission to the Musee du Louvre, or Louvre museum, and avoid the hassle of purchasing tickets on-site. See the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, and the Winged Victory of Samothrace, and then discover entire wings devoted to decorative arts, French paintings, Italian masterpieces, and more.
What to Expect

Follow your own schedule on this self-guided tour, which allows you to enter the collection directly with skip-the-line admission. Pick up entrance tickets at your leisure at an office conveniently located next to The Louvre. From there, you’ll breeze past the crowds waiting outside the museum.

Be sure to pick up a map because collections are spread out across 782,910 square feet (72,735 square meters). Most visitors rush to get a front-row peek at the mysterious Mona Lisa, but you’ll be able to explore the sprawling collections at your leisure with the time saved from purchasing direct admission tickets.

You might start with Egyptian antiquities—the spoils of Napoleon’s expeditions to the Near East—and ancient treasures like the famous 2,000-year-old Venus de Milo statue. Then you could head to the French painting wing, where you can glimpse neoclassical masterpieces by artists such as Eugène Delacroix and Jacques-Louis David. Be sure to also wander under-the-radar attractions like the suites of the lavish former royal palace, which the great kings of France once called home.

Excellent experience!

No hassle picking up tickets. Get your tickets in no ticket me at all. Pickup location is about 3 minutes away from the Louvre. No-wait line for those with tickets and bingo! You're inside.
