The Louvre for me is a wonderful experience. Because it continues; it didn’t get cut off. It was actually a continuous involvement all the way, and a lot of people have come and gone, come and gone; but I’m still here.

I simply have to agree! Visiting the Louvre is an experience.

The Louvre is a museum of art. It is located in Paris,France.

Did you know that the Louvre is over a 200 years old and was once a fortress?

The beautiful glass pyramid we see in photos depicting the Louvre was built much later in 1988. This structure is a landmark.

The museum displays different forms of art and many ancient antiquities as well. There are 35,000 art work and over 350,000 objects on display.

There is so much to see that I would think you would need more than a day to actually explore and experience all that it has to offer you.

The Louvre is also famous for the Mona Lisa, a painting by Leonardo da Vinci.

The Louvre experience makes you have a whole new appreciation for art. Here is a lovely quote that describes how Susan Vreeland feels after having visited the Louvre.

Coming out of the Louvre for the first time in 1971, dizzy with new love, I stood on Pont Neuf and made a pledge to myself that the art of this newly discovered world in the Old World would be my life companion.
