"The most visited museum in the world." Top 5 Page for this destination Louvre Tip by breughel

Louvre, Paris: 795 reviews and 1,585 photos

  The most visited museum in the world.
by breughel

According to Art Newspaper and reported by other newspapers over here Le LOUVRE is the most visited museum in the world (8.9 million visitors/year).
The reason I think is that Le Louvre combines the multiplicity and richness of the collections with the architectural beauty outside and inside of the Palais du Louvre.

This world top one rank justifies the fact that I wrote here more than a dozen reviews about Le Louvre and I dare say that they are not redundant as there are 8 departments and inside the departments various sections and furthermore so many unique works of great historical or artistic value.

My only regret with Le Louvre is that the management did not offer me a life pass to the museum after all the favorable reviews I wrote on VT.

As for the other world top ten museums they are:
N° 2 Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (6.0 million visitors/year)
N° 3 British Museum, London (5.8)
N° 4 National Gallery, London (5.2)
N° 5 Tate Modern, London (4.8)
N° 6 National Gallery of Art, Washington DC (4.4)
N° 7 National Palace Museum, Taipei (3.8)
N° 8 Centre Pompidou, Paris (3.6)
N° 9 National Museum of Korea, Seoul (3.2)
N° 10 Musée d'Orsay, Paris (3.1)

It's a deception for me that the Musée d'Orsay is not higher in that list, at least before the Centre Pompidou and the Tate Modern!
