Louvre MuseumFree: First Sundays of each month; Bastille Day (July 14th); Friday nights 6pm – 9:45pm for guest under 25 years old

Located at central Paris, Louvre Museum is one of the world’s largest museum. Originally built as a fortress in the 12th century (now visible in the basement of the museum), the building now houses many famous historical objects and works of art. The most popular is probably “Monalisa”. Expect to fight your way through the Da Vinci Code crowd to catch a closer glimpse on this lady. On free days, the entry lines to the museum is extremely long. For those without the patience, you’ll at least get to enjoy the magnificent Glass Pyramid outside the museum.
