You have to go to the Louvre. I tend to enjoy museums in the quality, not quantity vein, like the Ufizzi. The Louvre has both. If you've gotten the Carte Musee, then you can skip the outlandish line and explore the vast (and overwhelming) collection without a lot of hassle. Get lost. It's worth it.

I particularly recommend just wandering. You might end up face to face with Ramses the something-or-other or run across the medieval foundations of the castle -- the Louvre was a castle first and a museum after. You're not going to see the Mona Lisa anyway. Trust me. Half of Osaka lives between you and the Mona Lisa, and they're all taking photographs.
