A peek inside du Musée du Louvre

I love the Louvre! When you arrive to the museum, you will more than likely see some very friendly mounted policemen in the courtyard. The architecture of the building is very beautiful too. It is easy to become lost in such a large museum, so a stop by the information desk is a necessity. I think the present-day artists who "set up shop" in the hallways are more talented than some of the original artists! It can be more difficult to master a replica than to create an original one. It is not just the paintings on the walls that are masterpieces, you can take in an eye full from floor to ceiling. A shot of Miss Venus The number one reason to visit the Louvre. What do YOU think Mona Lisa is smiling about?
