Why You Shouldn't Miss the Louvre Museum
The Louvre Museum is the biggest art museum in the world and also the second most visited. What makes The Louvre special is that it not only aims at collecting and exhibiting some of the most iconic and important works of art in our history, but it has managed to do so across cultures, civilizations and our existence timeline. From Egyptian artifacts that are 4,000 years old to modern works of art from Oriental artists, the Louvre has been the honorary arbiter of our artistic heritage.
There are over 380,000 exhibits (with 35,000 currently on display) in the Louvre Museum. These are spread over 8 curatorial departments - Egyptian Antiquities; Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities; Near Eastern Antiquities; Islamic Art; Decorative Arts; Sculpture; Paintings; Drawings and Prints. As you gaze at these works of art, you aren’t just looking at paintings but emblems of our history. Going through the galleries of The Louvre is an experience that everyone must experience once in their lifetime.

- Wednesday and Friday are the best days to visit the museum as it stays open till longer and you can linger about the museum in peace as the crowds lessen considerably during the closing hours (9:45 p.m).
- Try going either early in the morning or around 3 p.m. in the afternoon. You’ll never have the Louvre Museum all to yourself, but mornings and evenings will be the least crowded hours of the day.
- Wear comfortable shoes and carry water as there is going to be a lot of walking. You can also borrow walking sticks and foldable fabric chairs from the museum centre free of cost.
