The Louvre Museum Paris - exterior and interior with pieces of art

Here are a few photographs of the outside and inside of the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. The most famous museum in the world. There are some photos of the statues of the Centaur and Diana, as well as the background of the tiled marble corridors.

The first photograph is a view of the museum from the outside, with the glass and metal pyramid centred against the background of the building of the Louvre.
