Musee du Louvre

It currently covers a total area of 652,300 square feet.

It is one of the biggest museums in the world and is the most visited museum in the world.

The Louvre was not originally built to house a museum; in fact, the structure was built some 600 years prior to its conversion into the museum it is today. The Louvre was built as a fortress to protect against possible raids at the order of King Phillipe-Auguste. Because the construction was done over a long period of time there were several architects. It was finished in 1793.
