The Louvre Museum (Musée du Louvre) | Paris

Shot @ Louvre Museum,Paris,France,Sept08.

 

The Louvre Museum (French: Musée du Louvre), located in Paris, France, is the world's most visited art museum, a historic monument, and a national symbol.

 

The collection's nearly 35,000 pieces are displayed over 60,000 square metres (650,000 sq ft). The museum lies between the River Seine and the Rue de Rivoli on the Right Bank in the 1st arrondissement neighborhood.

 

A central landmark in Paris, the Louvre is slightly askew of the axe historique (historical axis), a roughly eight-kilometre (five-mile) architectural line bisecting the city.
