The Louvre Museum in Paris, France, is one of the world's most visited art museums, a historic monument, and a national symbol. The collection of more than 35,000 pieces are displayed over 60,000 square metres. The museum lies between the Seine and the Rue de Rivoli on the Right Bank in the 1st arrondissement neighborhood. A central landmark in Paris, the Louvre is slightly askew of the axe historique which is a roughly 8 kilometres architectural line bisecting the city.
