    I downloaded the masterpiece audio tour and it directs me to other locations not included in the audio tour. My girlfriend purchased the full audio tour and it was so large unable to download while at the Louvre
  • the paper map was more useful

    there are no descriptions of any of the artwork. it just directs you to pay $5 for the audio tour.
  • No written descriptions

    This app is useless. It doesn’t have written descriptions for any of the works. Only has audio. Waste of time.
  • Don’t buy this if you’re at the Louvre

    This app might be worth it if you download it in advance, but if you buy it while on the Louvre Wi-Fi or using data while in the Louvre, there’s a good chance you won’t be able to download it. My download never got past 1% in the museum, and I had to go ahead and get one of the museum issued audio tours anyways.
  • The app is only partially to blame, but incredibly hard to navigate

    I can hardly tell where I am most of the time - the different levels of the building need to be labeled more clearly. It’s also confusing where to find audio in the app.
  • Do not buy this audio guide

    I downloaded the app and purchased the comprehensive guide in advanced, while my husband rented the Nintendo guide at the Louvre. I was really disappointed when we would go to different exhibits and I would put the audio guide number in and it would say “invalid” while it worked for my husband. I check again to make sure that I downloaded the full audio guide, which I did. Confused I went to information to see if they would assist me, but the gentlemen said he didn’t know anything about the app. I asked if there was some one there who was familiar and he said no. I went to the audio guide desk to see if someone could help me, and the woman there stated that it’s not the “official” Louvre app. I told her I downloaded it from the Louvre website. She couldn’t/wouldn’t help me. I went to another audio desk and the gentlemen said he wasn’t sure either. Needless to say this was a waste. Do not download this app. Buy the Nintendo audio guide at the museum.

    While the commentaries I listened to were quite good, it’s incredibly frustrating that you have to keep the app open and not lock your phone while listening. Also, it kept saying I was one 1er when I was on 2er. I understand how that might be hard to differentiate, but perhaps allowing to choose what floor you’re on would be helpful. Also, the directions didn’t work. It would lead me into a wall, literally. Sometimes it simply wouldn’t give me an option for directions. Definitely download the commentaries at a place with strong wi-fi. I stood right by the wi-fi sign and it still took 10 minutes. (And I just did the short one)!
  • Falls short of its potential

    Plus side: you get a whirlwind tour of what the Louvre has to offer. Negatives: the locator does not easily locate. I thought I'd be able to plot a course for my visit, no such luck. I'd also like descriptions and background details of the featured pieces.
  • Waste of time and money

    Way too confusing for a tourist
  • Not worth it

    There is no information about the works of art in the app, and it doesn’t tell you exactly what room to find them in, just the floor and wing. My map location did not work either (it kept placing me outside the museum on the banks of the Seine) so I could not use that to find what I wanted to see.
