One nice feature of the Louvre is how contemporary art is included in the middle of some of the galleries. Along with these statues, there was a huge polished silver mirror installation in one of the Egyptian galleries.
Brass and marble sculptures are my favourite form of visual art.
It is interesting to watch living artists working from the examples provided by dead and venerated ones.
Along with art and historical artifacts, the Louvre includes the apartments of Napoleon III. This adds something like a palace tour to the whole experience.
Even the graffiti near the Louvre is none too bad.
