The Louvre  
  World Art Museums  
  The Louvre
"Open to all since 1793": From the outset, the Louvre has embodied the concept of a truly "universal" institution. Universal in the scope of its collections, it is also universal in its appeal to some 6 million visitors every year: a 21st-century museum rooted in 200 years of innovation.

A painting in a museum hears more ridiculous opinions than anything else in the world.

Edmond de Goncourt

Reading guides and news about art is helpful to gain knowledge and an idea of what art is in general. However, in order to truly know what one likes to look at, it helps to see an original classic hanging on a wall.

Seeing a live painting is different from looking at a photograph of it. Observing the types of strokes, the thickness of paint, the vibrance of color and feeling the atmosphere that it adds to a room cannot be done by looking at a pixelized version on a computer screen.

This page contains a geographically alphabetized list of popular art museums around the world. Art museums in United States of America are listed on a separate page (click here) due to the enormous length of the list.
