Louvre Museum Ticket

If we had to choose the most visited museum in the world, it would definitely be the Louvre in Paris. Opened in 1793, the iconic gallery receives more than 8 million visitors a year, who come to admire the more than 35,000 works of art inside.

The Musée du Louvre is located in the Louvre Palace, whose 12th-century architecture contrasts magnificently with the glass pyramid built in 1989, which has become one of its symbols.

Have you always dreamed of seeing the Mona Lisa up close? Discover Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous painting alongside the rest of the masterpieces which fill the largest art museum in the world. An unmissable visit!

Skip the Line

One of the main reasons that people visit Paris without getting to see the Louvre Museum are the seemingly endless queues. With this Skip the Line ticket, you’ll access the gallery without having to wait in the ticket office queue.

This ticket is 3 euros more than the standard ticket price. However, reserving this Skip the Line ticket will save you time and guarantee you entry within your desired time slot. During the booking process, we’ll ask you to select your preferred time, and after completing your purchase, we’ll send you your vouchers stating the exact entry time within the selected time slot.

Free Entry

Children under 18 years old accompanied by an adult, EU citizens from 18 to 25 years old, and visitors with disabilities (plus the person accompanying them) all get free admission to the Louvre.

For free entry for EU citizens from 18 to 25 years old and for visitors with disabilities (and the person accompanying them), tickets must be reserved directly at the Louvre Museum.

The only tickets that can be booked with Civitatis are those for children under 18 years old, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

Those who qualify for free entry must present an ID document (or supporting document) to accredit their status at the museum's security access point.

Temporary Exhibitions

Although the ticket includes entry certain temporary exhibitions, this does not include the Leonardo da Vinci's temporary exhibition, for which you'll need to make a separate reservation.
