What to Expect
Purchasing tickets for entry at the venue is not only time consuming but often times, futile. Usually, same day entry tickets on site tend to sell out before mid-day, even if you waited in line for several hours, as many visitors must do. Our fast track Louvre tickets provide you with priority access to this iconic museum. 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.
Feel free to browse through some of the 380,000 exhibits (with 35,000 currently on display) in the Louvre Museum. These are spread over 8 curatorial departments – Egyptian Antiquities; Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities; Near Eastern Antiquities; Islamic Art; Decorative Arts; Sculpture; Paintings; Drawings and Prints. From Egyptian artifacts that are 4,000 years old to modern works of art from Oriental artists, the Louvre has been the honorary arbiter of our artistic heritage. As you gaze at these works of art, you aren’t just looking at paintings but emblems of our history. Going through the galleries of The Louvre is an experience that everyone must experience once in their lifetime.
Most people only visit the Louvre once in a lifetime. Our priority access to the Louvre guarantees that you have a once-in-a-lifetime, hassle-free experience when you’re there.
Your tickets to the Louvre Museum combine the benefits of a fluid redemption process with priority access that helps you save your precious time by booking exclusively with Headout.

- Try going either early in the morning or around 3 p.m. in the afternoon. You’ll never have the Louvre Museum all to yourself, but mornings and evenings will be the least crowded hours of the day.
