The Louvre is one of the most visited Museum in Europe. The majority of visitors gets in by the pyramide entrance. Because of security you often have to wait a long time. They control every one one by one. Sometime, it can take hours to get into the museum. Notice that it's only a security problem. When you are inside, there are many tickets distributors and you don't have to wait to get a ticket.

Unique Suggestions: Take an umbrella in case of rain, and in summer take water.

Fun Alternatives: To avoid the pyramide entrance queue, there are 2 solutions, one is the entrance near the Carrousel on the left of it when you have the pyramide in your back. The other is to get in passing by the metro. You must go on the line #1 platform and walk to one of the end of it where the indication is not Musée du Louvre but CARROUSEL DU LOUVRE. Then you will arrive in the commercial mail that leads to the museum.
