Your Experience

Your tickets to the Louvre Museum are ideal as they combine the benefits of a fluid redemption process with priority access that helps you save precious time. A well-scripted audio guide gives you ample information on the artwork on display, along with the history of the museum. The Louvre's classical collection will take you back in time to life in Egypt as seen through Italian and French art masterpieces that are most sought-after by art lovers.

As soon as you complete your booking, you will receive an email confirming your Louvre tickets, followed by another email containing your tickets. On the day of your visit to the museum, simply make your way to the relevant entrance line out of the three that can be found in front of the famed glass pyramid of the museum (refer to the "My Tickets" section below). You will be able to bypass the arduous ticketing queues in your line, and after a brief security check that is mandatory for every visitor, you are free to roam the halls of the Louvre.

If you wish to explore the Louvre Museum on a guided tour or save money with a combo experience, then refer to our Louvre Museum tours and tickets collection.

Please note that these are not flexible entry tickets, and should you miss the date or time of entry, you will not be able to reschedule your tickets, but you will be subject to the same entry conditions as those without tickets, i.e. you will have to line up to gain entry in the green line for visitors without pre-purchased tickets.

You literally zoom past a rather arduous queue of people to buy these tickets. Guess we do actually “Skip the line”: well named

Skip the line tickets never looked so good: they genuinely value you for paying extra, and you get to skip a very long queue at the entrance! Not to mention the Louvre is incomparable: amazing!

I was captivated by the Islamic art: literally spent most of my time at this gallery, gawking at the rawness of it all
