예유나 - ⑧ Musee du Louvre
Hello, my name is Yuna, and this is my eighth article about museums. I’d like to show you the Louvre museum. Originally the Louvre was a simple defensive fortress for a long time as one of the main residence of French kings. It became a museum in 1793, and now exhibits are there nearly 35,000 objects from prehistory to the 21st century. The oldest one is over seven thousand years. The museum collections are grouped into eight curatorial departments: Egyptian Antiquities; Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities; Near Eastern Antiquities; Islamic Art; Paintings; Sculptures; Decorative Arts; and Prints and Drawings.
You are about to enter the Louvre, the world’s largest and most-visited museum, drawing nearly 10 million people each year. It is used for education, to preserve and pass on our heritage to future generations.

Although I got lost by the winding staircases confusing me, I have enjoyed the time spending at Louvre seeing all the famous pictures that I only heard them about. Why, the Mona Lisa made me bursting glee! You would be sure to check out the cool pictures sometime.
