Best way to get by Public transport?

Palais Royal-Musee du Louvre or Louvre-Rivoli stations if you are coming by train. However, Tuileries, Pyramides and Musee d'Orsay stations are also within a few minutes walking distance of the museum. There are plenty of other public transport options available too including the buses. The velib is also a lovely option to soak in the atmosphere while you are getting there.
