louvre-museum A diverse and beautiful country, France is one of the most popular destinations in the world. The many museums and the art that can be found inside them, are just some of the reasons why France is so popular. Millions of people visit the France museums each year and see some of the best works of art that the human culture has ever produced.

You will find in France a huge number of museums, from art, to history, castles and palaces. All can be visited if you want to see them. Some of the best museums in France can be found in the city of Paris. This is truly home to some of the most magnificent works of art. A few of the museums that I would highly recommend you to visit if you’re in Paris are the Louvre Museum, Centre Pompidou, Sacre-Coeur, Arc de Triomphe, Musee d’Orsay and the Notre Dame Cathedral.

The most popular museum in France is the Louvre, which is also one of the largest museums of the world. From ancient times to the 20th century, the Louvre Museum has huge art collections, which will take you entire days to see and admire. It’s considered by many to be the best art museum of our times, with paintings like the Mona Lisa (by Leonardo da Vinci) in its collection.

Since there are so many art lovers visiting France museums each year, it can get a little crowded at times. To avoid the crowds a good tip would be to arrive either at the beginning, when the museum opens up, or at the end, since many museums stay open until late. For example, the Louvre is open until 10 PM, during two days of the week (Wednesday and Friday). This is also true for other great museums, though opening hours and days when they are open at night will differ.
