Trip Report Report on lines for Vermeer at the Louvre

Jump to last reply

I posted with questions regarding lines for this exhibit. We had tickets today for 1:00 PM. We tried to enter through the Carrousel entrance but we were told we had to enter through the Pyramid outside. There was a special line with no one in it for ticket holders We saw the other two special exhibits before getting in line for Vermeer. We entered the ticket line at 12:30 and went through at 1:06. And there is a second queue and we were let through in small batches. We got through that at 1:22.

If you want an audio guide you must get it on the next level. We thought they would be available at the entrance to this exhibit but that is not so. ( Which seems like a loss of revenue. Very few people had them. We were told we had to go out to get them and stand in line to come back in. Seriously?)

It was not jammed and I was able to see all the paintings from right in front of them. The Valentin exhibit is in an adjacent space and quite a contrast.

This is am amazing value and experience for admission to the Louvre and four special exhibits.
