Musee du Louvre

Metro : Palais-Royal-Musee-du-Louvre

    The Musée du Louvre, hung with the private collections of monarchs and their ministers, was first opened to the public in 1793, during the Revolution. Within a decade; Napoleon had expanded it with takings from his empire and made it the largest art collection on earth.
    Until recently, it required heroic willpower and stamina to navigate your way around the thousands of works on display. The Grand Louvre project, however, has breathed new life into the building : exhibition floor-space has almost doubled, necessitating a complete reorganization in order to display the thousands of works of art previously kept in the reserves. As a result of the improvements brought about by the Mitterand's project, the number of visitors has increased significantly and there are nearly always long queues to get into the building. One way of avoiding the queues is to buy tickets in advance : these are available from branches of FNAC, Virgin Megastore in the Carrousel du Louvre and other big department stores. Lately, many automatic cashier tickets have been displayed all around the different entrances of the building.
