Purchased another timed ticket for 9:00 AM and printed it at the hotel the night before. There seemed to be significantly less people this morning (Friday) than on Wednesday.
This was a successful attempt to visit the remaining open areas of the museum. The Americas and Oceania section was closed as well as a couple of other sections, however I was able to visit the remaining areas of the museum. So at my pace it took about 24 hours to visit the Louvre. To explain how big this museum is – there are two long sections that are longer than 1/3rd of a mile, which means you will walk more than a mile inside just on one floor – and there is more than one floor.
My recommendation is to visit the Louvre for at least two days and go on Wednesday and Friday as they are the longer days.
