Louvre Museum Paris, France
We believe, our reader must be well conversant with the word Museum as to what does it reflect and why it has always been found necessary to know much about it. It is nothing but an institution or an organization that takes care for the collection of artifacts and other objects including scientific, cultural, historical, and artistic importance. All these items are kept indefinite synchronized pattern for public viewing through exhibits that may be exposed permanently or temporarily. Museums have changeable aims, ranging from serving researchers and specialists to serving the general public. Mostly large museums are located in major cities throughout the world and more local one does exist in smaller cities, district, towns and even the countryside.
Up till now we were making an effort to make our reader realise and understand what does actually it means, and what for we all are using this museum. Now we like to come back to discuss Louvre Museum. The Louvre gallery is one of the world’s largest museums and a historic memorial. A central attraction of Paris, France, it is placed on the Right Bank of the Seine in the 1st arrondissement. Almost 35,000 objects from prehistory to the 21st century are exhibited over an area of 60,600 square metres. It is expected more than 9.7 million people visits each year, the place is the world’s most visited museum.
It is believed some time back during the French Revolution the place was transformed into a public museum. In May 1791, the Assembly had declared that the Louvre would be “a place for bringing together monuments of all the sciences and arts”. On August 1792, Louis XVI was caged and the royal collection in the gallery became national property. Because of fear of vandalism, wreckage or theft, on 19 August 19, 1792, the National Assembly pronounced the museum’s preparation was to be taken on top priority basis. In October, a committee to “preserve the national memory” began assembling the collection for display. The gallery opened on August 10, 1793, the first anniversary of the monarchy’s termination. The public was given free access on three days per week, which was “perceived as a major accomplishment and was generally appreciated”.
