Le Louvre.

I think it's safe to assume that the n°1 museum people think of, when they hear about Paris is le Louvre. However, this isn't my favourite museum in Paris, not even one I think of visiting often. Don't get me wrong, I love that place. It's magnificient. It's impressive. It makes you feel so small. It's such a strange feeling to be surrounded by beautiful art pices in such a beautiful setting. It's one of the rare cases when the diamond lies in a box that is equally as beautiful. To think Louis XIV used to live there before moving to Versailles... 
But, as the most visited museum in the world, it's ALWAYS crowded. Always. It's also so big, that you end up spending the whole day in there. In short, it's a commitment. Which I'm not often ready to take. But when I do, oh Lord am I happy.
