In this article we would like to share some interesting details about some of the most famous museums around the world.
#1. Le Louvre, Paris, France
This museum used to be a medieval fortress and a castle in which the French kings spent their winters. But it turned out that it was too big for a place for living, so it was turned into a museum 200 years after it was built. The entire collection of the museum goes from early Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Persian art, to antique Greek and Roman pieces to some of the most famous paintings from the Renaissance, like Mona Lisa. It is said that if you spend at least two minutes in front of every piece, it will take you 3 years to see everything.
