The Louvre is not only one of the best art museums in the world, it’s also one of the biggest. There are 35,000 objects on display out of a collection of 380,000. This walking tour features part 2 of the Louvre Museum in Sully, Richelieu, Cour Marly and Cour Puget Wing. Great display of Egyptian antiquities and its Sarcophagus and Statues. Followed by room view from the time of Louis XIV - XVI and which includes the Napoleon Apartments. Unfortunately, the day that I recorded this virtual tour, it was extremely busy due to bad weather.
