Musée du Louvre

The Louvre in Paris is quite simply a mammoth. The word "museum" may even be unfitting when it comes to the Louvre: the collections are so vast, diverse, and breathtaking that visitors The Louvre may be the most actively avoided museum in the world. Daunted by the richness and sheer size of the place (the side facing the Seine is some 700m long, and it is said that it would take nine months just to glance at every piece of art here), both local people and visitors often find the prospect of an afternoon at a smaller museum far more invitingmay have the impression of navigating a maze of distinct artistic and cultural worlds.
Spanning eight thematic departments and 35,000 pieces of artwork dating from the antiquity to the early modern period, the Louvre's permanent collection includes masterpieces by European masters such as Da Vinci, Delacroix, Vermeer, and Rubens, as well as unsurpassed Greco-Roman, Egyptian, or Islamic arts collections. Frequent temporary exhibits often highlight particular artists or movements, and are almost always worthwhile. If you want to visit Louvru you must be very patience because you will always wait in a cue for a couple of minutes, personally I prefer Museum D'Orsay instead of Louvre,Louvre Museum Opening Hours are Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, 9 am-6 p.m, Wednesday and Friday 9 am-10 p.m. Admission is free for all on the first Sunday of each month.
