This e-ticket allows you to quickly and easily enter the quintessential art museum: the Louvre. The Louvre’s collection encompasses antiquities from Mesopotamia, Egypt, and Greece, and masterpieces by artists such as da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Rembrandt. With 35,000 works of art, it takes time and dedication but you will see how it is worth it!
The Louvre’s collection focuses on two important eras in art history: Art and crafts of ancient civilizations (especially those that are the foundation of Western art) and the Western European artfrom the Middle Ages to 1848 (later art is at the Musée d’Orsay).
This famous museum was originally a palace that contained the private art collections of the French kings. The palace first opened its doors on the initiative of the Royal Academy in 1725, but it was not until 1793, during the French Revolution, that the gallery was opened to the public (not coincidentally).
In no time, the museum’s already impressive collection increased in number thanks to the spoils of Napoleon’s forays into Europe.
The celebrated character transformed the Louvre’s collection into the largest in the world, and although part of the loot was returned, part of it still remains in the museum.
