Home to the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, and other renowned works of art, the Musée du Louvre is at the top of most Parisian itineraries—with lines to match. Fortunately, there are ways around the wait. Here are our tips for skipping the line.

Guided Skip-the-Line Tours
As the world's largest museum, the Louvre can be overwhelming to navigate on your own. Opt for a guided tour for two big perks: skip-the-line access and a guide who makes sure you see the most important pieces of art in the most efficient way. Plus, you'll get more out of your visit with commentary about the history of the museum and artwork. Options vary, so you can select a tour that matches your preferences, from an express tour that covers just the highlights to a family tour with a kid-focused itinerary.

Evening Skip-the-Line Visits
With an evening skip-the-line tour of the Louvre, you'll avoid the daytime crowds and have the chance to admire the former palace and its glass pyramid in a romantic glow. An included wine tasting can provide another French cultural experience to round out the night.

Louvre and Musée d'Orsay Skip-the-Line Combo Tours
See not just the Louvre but also another top Paris art museum with a skip-the-line combo tour. Select a small-group or private experience for a well-rounded look at the city's classical art, from the Louvre's Egyptian antiquities and Roman statues to the Musée d'Orsay's Impressionist masterpieces. Located inside a former train station, the D'Orsay is also known for its elegant Beaux-Arts architecture.
