Musee du Louvre Paintings

Musee du Louvre (the Louvre Museum) is synonymous with fine art, and no trip to Paris would be complete without a visit to this famous museum. Housed in a former royal palace, the Louvre is world's most visited art museum and displays more than 35,000 art objects, spanning the vast period from pre-historic times to the 19th century.

History
The Louvre Museum became a royal art gallery when the French kings moved their court from Paris to Versailles in the late 17th century. After the French Revolution, the former palace was open to the public, with just 537 paintings. Today, the museum's collection numbers approximately 380,000 objects, less than 10% of which are on display at any one time. The Louvre welcomes nearly nine million visitors annually.

Highlights of the Musee du Louvre
It would take weeks, if not longer, to see every object on display at the Louvre, so don't even try. However, it is possible to savor several of the museum's highlights during a day's visit. Some on the things you'll not want to miss include:

Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci - Perhaps the museum's most famous work, this small canvas captivates, even in a room with dozens of other art lovers.

Venus de Milo - This armless ancient Greek sculpture is thought to depict the Greek goddess, Aphrodite.

Winged Victory of Samothrace - This marble figure of the Greek God Nike, from the 2nd century B.C.A., is one of the most celebrated sculptures in the world.

Liberty Leading the People by Eugene Delacroix - This painting of French nationalism is a good example of the Romantic school of French painting. The figure of Liberty is said to have inspired the figure of the Statue of Liberty in New York City.

The Louvre is divided into eight collections, including Egyptian antiquities; decorative arts; Greek, Etruscan and Roman art; oil paintings; and decorative arts. In addition, the museum hosts a full schedule of temporary exhibits.

Visiting the Museum
The Louvre Museum is open every day except for Tuesdays and major holidays. The museum is also open in the evenings on Wednesday and Friday nights. The Louvre Museum is easy to reach from all over Paris. It even has its own Metro station. If you get hungry while visiting, the Louvre has a cafe as well as a McDonald's outlet.

How to Save on Your Museum Visit
Paris sightseeing isn't known for being inexpensive. However, there are a few ways you can save when visiting the Louvre. Admission to the museum is free to everyone on the second Sunday of the month. In addition, admission is free every day for those under 18 years of age, art and art history teachers and disabled visitors and their helpers. If you are planning to visit several museums while in Paris, you can save money by purchasing a Paris Museum Pass (available online and at Paris Metro stations.) One price includes admission to 60 Paris museums. Plus, with the pass, you don't have to wait in the ticket line. You can walk right into the museum.

If Paris is on your agenda this season, don't be intimidated by the fame and the size of the Louvre. Even a visit of a few hours can leave a lasting impression.
