I am mixing things up this week by providing a museum as our travel journey of the week. The Louvre is filled with an unimaginable number of masterpieces. Let’s share what we have discovered in the former palace. Here is how you can contribute:
1. Each Sunday, a place will be set as the theme (it could be a city, landmark, national park, etc.)
2. If you are familiar with the place and would like to contribute, you will write a post and title it Travel Journey of the Week: Louvre. If you’ve already written a post about Louvre, feel free to share it in the comments section!
3. Your post can be any medium that works for you; videos, photos, descriptions, itineraries, personal memories, poems, ticket stubs, etc.
4. Finally, be sure to provide a link back here so everyone can connect and share their own take on the place: http://liberatedtraveler.com/2013/09/29/travel-journey-of-the-week–louvre/
Travel Journey of the Week: Louvre

Wow your pictures show no line at the entrance! When I was there we had to wait for a quite long time.. Cool photos! 🙂
The Louvre can be overwhelming. It was immense with miles of artwork and the really cool thing was that it was once a palace. Each time I was there I tried to see the Vermeer paintings and for some reason that section was always closed. That is my goal, to see them some day. (I have to admit – I also loved the food court).
My favorite museum I have been at least 4 times – On one trip to Paris I spent two whole days exploring it. I still have not seen everything!
We went in a side entrance near the lions on a Sunday (free admission). No line and the guards let us in and we just walked in. Not to dismiss one of the world’s greatest museums of all times but on a year long RTW adventure with children you see a lot of museums and despite being in one of the best our kids can only handle so long before they are done for any day. So we have learned that one must enjoy a smaller more meaningful moment than taking in a lot of the museum. This time we had to make a quick stop to say hi to Mona and spent a longer time wandering the beautiful halls with tapestries, maps and portraits that amaze.
The Louvre is the most amazing and most exhausting museum ever! The link above wasn’t working, I’ll just leave my url here
Lovely photos Melissa, mine are from the other end of the day – sunset:
I loved to see everyone’s pictures. Such a remarkable place. I also planned to spend a day at the Louvre on my last trip, and that didn’t happen. Oh well, I guess I will have to go back. The building has an amazing history. Don’t miss the history and archeology section when you visit. They still have remnants of the ancient walls.
