Happy Birthday Musee du Louvre

Yesterday was the anniversary of the opening of the Museum Central des Arts, or the Musee du Louvre as it is known as today. Standing as one the largest and most visited museum in the world, the Louvre first made its masterpieces available to the public 219 years ago.

I took this photo during my recent visit to Paris. I was so excited to finally see the Louvre and I was in awe of the size of it. Obviously I did not get to see everything I had planned. Ah well, looks like I am just going to have to make an effort to return to Paris! ;)
