Is Le Louvre the Greatest Museum in the World?

Anyone who has a passion for history and culture, dreams of visiting the Louvre in the heart of Paris. The Musée du Louvre is also known by the names Grand Louvre or the Louvre Museum. It is one of the most popular museums in the world. It is located in the Louvre Palace (Palais du Louvre), which was originally a fortress built in the late 12th century under Philip II on the Right Bank of the Seine in the 1st arrondissement district. During the French Revolution the Louvre was transformed into a public museum. On 10 August 1792, the Louvre became a national property after the imprisonment of Louis XVI.
