According to a March 26 report by Agence France-Presse in Paris, Louvre in Paris announced on 26 local time that nearly 500,000 collections have been moved online for free viewing by public.
As part of a major revamp of its online business, world's most visited museum has created a new database of 482,000 items on collections.louvre.fr, more than three-quarters of which are attached information and images.
Grave Clearing Day is coming soon, don't you think there are too many people here and they don't want to go out?
Do you like to go to museums, but are too lazy to walk?
Want to visit Louvre in Paris but put off your plan due to epidemic?
This major official move of Louvre is just a big plus. It will not only open eyes of friends who love museums, but also enjoy them again. Time and space are not limited. The key is that it's free. You know, cost of a day ticket to Louvre is 15 euros, which is a considerable amount, and no one can visit all exhibits of museum in one day.
Because Louvre is really too big, almost 500,000 exhibits, even just looking at flowers would take half a day.

There are many picturesque places in Paris, be it landscapes or humanities. Museums are most famous among them. As we all know, there are three famous museums in Paris. What exactly? These are Louvre, Center Pompidou, Orsay Museum.
Located on north bank of Seine in center of Paris, Louvre ranks first among four largest museums in world. Founded in 1204, it is one of most valuable buildings of French Renaissance and Palace of All Treasures that has attracted attention of whole world.
There are as many as 500,000 exhibits in Louvre collection. Some say it cannot be completed in three days and three nights. This is true. The first time I went to Louvre for 5 hours, I only saw two thirds of it, then I decided to visit Louvre again if I get chance.
To visit Louvre for second time now is a real happiness for three lifetimes.
If you are visiting Louvre for first time, you must enter through pyramid-shaped glass entrance in front of Louvre. This transparent pyramidal building covers an area of 24 hectares and was designed by a Chinese architect. Pei Yu (yu) Min off. If you love photography, you should not miss this place: whenever lights are on, one of most beautiful night scenes in Paris opens up here. (see two pictures at beginning of article)
There are 198 large and small exhibition halls in Louvre, and huge exhibition hall is subdivided into various small exhibition halls. To visit, you need to go through each exhibition hall, large and small, and you won't be able to take two or three hours off.
The Louvre is equipped with voice navigation, equipped with NDS-like handheld device, you can see your location and real-time view of work, but unfortunately there is no Chinese version, it is recommended that students who are good in English can rent one to increase feeling of experience. It doesn't matter if your English is poor, in fact Louvre is a treasure in itself, you are lucky to be in it and just appreciate it.Treasures of three town halls
The second visit to Louvre coincided with National Day of France, and it was another Sunday. The Louvre was open for free and I saved 15 euros in one go. I was happy.
Perhaps because time is still early, queue is not too long, and queue for entry has been standing for more than ten minutes.
At this time, helicopter squad began to rumble across sky. For a while birds were frightened and sky was full of excitement. Looking at various helicopter phalanxes, everyone in crowd took out their mobile phones and started taking pictures and waving their hands. . Looking up at plane patronizingly, when I came to my senses, I was already crashed into a line of N people, no matter what.
There are really a lot of clouds in Paris. It’s still sunny on other side of river, but it’s cloudy here, but it’s convenient to look up
Second brush of Louvre, itinerary of tour here was very clear, follow crowd and soon you will see treasures of three main town halls.
"Venus with a broken arm"
Statue of Victory
There are always crowds of people in front of Mona Lisa statue. I don't know how many people saw her enigmatic smile
In addition to treasures of three town halls, ancient Greek and Roman halls, ancient Egyptian halls, oriental art halls, painting halls, etc. deserve attention.Gallery of favorite sculptures
The sculpture gallery made me stay longest.
Looking at soft curves of body and distinct lines on skin, it's just a real muscle, and you can even feel body's temperature when you touch it. (Note, do not touch)
Walking around here, I can't help but think of a scene from Night at Museum. When night falls, characters in sculptures and paintings come to life and try to talk to me and tell their stories. , as if I was turning around, they walked along booth and lightly patted me on shoulder,
"Hi, it's you"
Let's face it, it's really hard for you to imagine that these are actually marble sculptures. I remember when I first got to Louvre, I spent a lot of time in sculpture area.Stroll through hallway of famous paintings
Having visited Louvre for second time, I still feel like a chicken without a head when I go there. Facing huge exhibition hall is really difficult. Organize your thoughts, compare map, and begin to uncover regrets about past.
In fact, Louvre itself is a treasure, and being in it and just appreciating it is a blessing.
This painting shows appearance of Louvre in 18th century and environment of that time
There are such huge paintings in many exhibition halls. One picture seems to tell a story. I am very curious how such pictures are drawn little by little
I think that everyone should be familiar with this picture, I remember it appeared in elementary school textbooks
Walking past the Mona Lisa exhibition hall, I saw a sign. I don’t know who was so naughty and added two mustaches to her
The residence of Napoleon III, extremely luxurious, is his restaurant
There are too many exhibits, so I won't show them one by one here, now you can enjoy more regular work at home while drinking coffee from left bank via Internet. Or follow me and stay tuned for my constant updates to bring you an image of Paris.
Of course, if you have opportunity, I still hope that everyone can visit Louvre in person and experience it. Walking through exhibition hall, you will find that placement and lighting of each work is carefully considered. top floor and dungeon is mysterious exhibition ground of ancient Egypt, which can really bring new benefits every time.Unforgettable beauty at gates of Louvre
Leaving Louvre, you will see Tuileries Garden, which is a good place for Parisians to relax, play sports, date and dizzy.
Leaving Louvre area, I unlocked a new skill:
Since you can always see people riding different scooters in Paris, it turns out that there are not only shared bikes, but also shared scooters. I can't wait to download app and unlock it which is still useful. Standing on top of her, he kicked his feet and jumped out.
Riding it makes me prettiest boy on street
But when I got out of car to check, I cried.
While this small car is handy to have for getting around, it's very easy and stylish for you to walk streets and alleys of Paris, but price is not cheap. Unlocking costs one yuan, and then two cents per minute. In city Although ride was very steep, it took 20 minutes before I realized it. The price of 5.4 euros was equal to price of an internal taxi [crying]
Let's go back to hotel early and rest.
[To be continued: look forward to second of three major museums, Center Pompidou, and third, Musée d'Orsay]
