Where are they hiding it now?

If you have never heard of Musee de Louvre, or simply put the Louvre in Paris, then you are missing out (in my opinion that is). Not only is it one of the largest museums in the world and one of the most visited, it is also a historic landmark for France. Nearly 35,000 objects are exhibited within this structure.

During the Renaissance this structure was used as a residence for artists. It was also used to hold valuables to Francis I. One of those valuables was Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, which still finds its home there today.

The most memorable pieces housed in the Louvre tend to be some of the 6,000 paintings. Only 12 curators oversee the paintings. I will let the photos of this place speak for itself. If you are ever in Paris by chance this something you don't want to miss. Check out the photos and links.
