What people are saying about Palais du Louvre

The museum is, of course, amazing. The purchase experience with GetYorGuide was outstanding, everything through the app, easy communication, no huge lines at the museum because we already had our ticket. Really recommend buying it here!

Was an awesome ticket, made visiting super easy! The only downside was that we booked the ticket the same day, and so we almost didn’t get our voucher in time for our visit. If you book in advance, this is perfect!

Everything was good and perfectly scheduled, thank you for the journey, really enjoyed.

We have instant entrance without problem and we see all the exhibitions.

Seeing the Wings and Venus, Mona do be kinda scary doe.
