Musée du Louvre
Statistically standing as the most visited museum in the world, the Louvre showcases art from the moment you see the building, which in itself is an amazing masterpiece. Outwardly displaying the beauty of French architecture and design, the building, originally constructed in the late 12th century, showcases over 300,000 paintings, the most famous being the Venus de Milo and the Mona Lisa. Along with these famous works, the Louvre also displays a variety of other art collections including Islamic art, sculptures, Egyptian and Near Eastern antiquities, and various other types that show true artistry skills. Though it was once a relatively small museum that only showcased 537 paintings, today the Louvre is a must-visit museum that entertains visitors for hours upon hours.
