Musée du Louvre

The Louvre is one of the world's largest museums, and a historic monument.  A central landmark of Paris, France, it is located on the Right Bank of the Seine in the 1st arrondissement.  Nearly 35,000 objects from prehistory to the 19th century are exhibited in an area of 60,600 square metres.

Take a look at the following two pictures.  You get a feel for how large some of the paintings are!

Here are a some pictures of the amazing art and artefacts that are on display.

The art on the ceilings of The Louvre are absolutely amazing!

There are a lot of vantage points (windows) that enable you to view around the outside of the museum.

The Louvre takes some time to walk around.  We managed to see only a mere fraction of the exhibits that were on display, and it is easy to get disorientated with all the different rooms and passages that you come across.  I would recommend you set aside a full day at the Louvre.
