100 Museums to Visit Before You Die

Musée du Louvre

Location: Paris

2013 Exhibitions: Walid Raad: Preface to the First Edition (January 19 - April 8), Eugène Delacroix: Winter Flowers (December 12 - March 18), Mexican Art at the Louvre: Masterpieces from the 17th and 18th centuries (March 7 - June 7)

Once a fortress and later a palace, the Louvre is now the world's most-visited museum. It can take days just to view a single wing of its monumental collection, which includes iconic artworks from the Venus de Milo to the Mona Lisa. Making a pilgrimage to this Parisian jewel between servings of crepes is your best bet to see everything that you've forgotten from Art History 101.
