Visitors to Paris' Louvre museum warned to buy tickets in advance

Anyone planning a visit to Paris' Louvre museum has been warned to book in advance - as the museum is increasingly too full to accept visitors without a pre-booked ticket.


The Louvre has warned visitors that buying tickets online in advance is the only way of guaranteeing entry to the famous museum.

The 'museum full' signs have been seen outside the entrance as early as 9am some days, to the frustration of many tourists.

The Louvre Museum has seen big increases in attendances recently, with over 10 million visitors a year.

In May this year it closed due to strikes by the museum staff who claimed that the museum is 'suffocating' from the enormous amount of visits it is receiving, which left the tourists waiting in line in huge disappointment. 


If you are an aspiring visitor to the Louvre museum, make sure to buy your ticket online in advance through the museum's website as it will save you a lot of time and trouble.
