It was our third and final day in Paris and we’d saved some of the best museums for last – the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, and Musée Rodin.
We arrived at the Louvre just before it opened, and the line to enter through the pyramid was already an hour long. Because those people were waiting to buy tickets into the museum and not to get into the museum itself, we were able to waltz right in using our Paris Museum Pass (which we’d purchased the day before at the Versailles TI). Rather than deal with the crowds at the lauded pyramid entrance, we took advantage of the special Museum Pass/Group Entrance under the pedestrian walkway (Pavilion Richelieu). A disinterested attendant casually glanced at our passes, and that was that.
