The Most Magnificent Museum in the World

Yes it is - the Louvre is the most magnificent and largest museum in the world. You can not cover it in a day. We just kept moving from one gallery to the next. Yes, we rented the "mp3" head phones self guided tour, but if you listened to each entry, you might be there for a whole month. This place is unbelieveabe in it's scope of galleries and collections.

On top of that, the Louvre is its own attraction without the galleries - the ceilings, floors, halls, and rooms - all defy description unless you are standing in them! Check out the images - again, unbelieveable!

Now the art - the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, so many masterpieces under one roof - its breathtaking. There is a building project underway to build another museum to exhibit the some of the other 2/3's of the exhibits that are currently in storage! It makes you want to read the Da Vinci Code all over again.
