We visited the Louvre today in Paris.  We had the Museum Pass so we were able to skip the line and get in quickly. It was quite confusing to navigate even with the map, and there were more stairs than we could count.  However, it was totally worth seeing.  It was originally the palace of the French kings, and after the Revolution, it was taken over by the state and converted into the public art museum with the royal art collection.  One major nursing consideration that we noticed was that people with ambulatory aids would have a very hard time navigating the museum, due to the constant stairs.  There were elevators, but they were spread out and didn't access all of the wings.  Pictured are the Mona Lisa (blurry because of her special covering), the Venus de Milo, the grand salon of Napoleon III, and a student with a Mesopotamian sculpture.
