Where to pick up your tickets to enter the Louvre Museum?
Bring along your electronic voucher, either on your smartphone or printed out on paper. Go the northwest corner of the Place du Palais-Royal, where you will find a newstand shaped like a typically Parisian kiosk, painted green.
This kiosk stands just opposite the restaurant called La Brasserie du Louvre. It is open on the same opening days as those of the Louvre Museum, from 9am to 6.45pm.
Once you get to the kiosk, simply show the bar code on your electronic voucher and you are given your tickets, which give you access to the museum on a priority basis.
Your voucher also shows the exact location of your ticket kiosk and how to get to it.
