Trivia Crack Answer: Paris
About the most visited museum in the world
The Louvre is the most visited museum in the world and it can be found in Paris. The Louvre contains many famous works of art, including da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. Originally a palace, the Louvre became a museum during the French Revolution. The palace had been used to store much of the royal family’s collection of art and also as a residence for artists. King Francis I acquired the Mona Lisa during the 1540s. It has been on display at the Louvre permanently, except for two years when it was stolen by a Louvre employee. It is covered by bulletproof glass today. Every day, about 15,000 people visit the museum, making it the most visited museum in the world. The museum displays 35,000 works of art at any given time. Its wide range of periods and types of art make it appealing to many visitors. It is one of few museums among the most visited in the world to charge admission. The French government gives maintenance money to the Louvre, but ticket sales are used to expand the museum further. In 2006, The Da Vinci Code was allowed to film in the Louvre. You may enter the Louvre free of charge on Friday nights.
