Free Noctural Entrance to the Louvre Every 1st Saturday

The Louvre Museum is already open evenings until 9:45pm every Wednesday and Friday, but now it's also open every first Saturday of the month FOR FREE from 6pm-9:45pm. 

Meant to entice the locals to visit the museum again (or for the first time), the main two wings Denon and Sully are open to freely visit on your own, while the Richelieu wing is open for guided visits only (in French), which can be reserved on the Louvre's FB page a week before the first Saturday. These extra activities include live music, flashlight tours, storytelling, and games. 

Tip: As the Louvre Museum broke every possible record for attendance in 2018 (over 10 million visitors!), save yourself a headache by purchasing your ticket in advance or using the "Affluences" app to see in real-time how long the lines are at the three main entrances. There will always be lines for security, even when there's free entrance, but in general Wednesday and Friday evenings from 7pm-9pm are usually the least crowded.
