Louvre Museum in Paris Reopens to Visitors

The Louvre Museum, which houses the Mona Lisa, has reopened to visitors after being forced to close its doors four months ago due to the coronavirus pandemic

Visitors to Paris will once again be able to view the works of some of the world’s greatest artists as the Louvre reopens its doors.

Face masks must be worn inside and visitor numbers are limited. Pre-booking is required.

About 70% of the world-famous museum, housing 30,000 of the Louvre’s most prized works of art is once again accessible to visitors.

The Louvre is hoping the reopening will attract visitors from closer to home, including the Paris region, but is bracing for a plunge in numbers.

Before the pandemic, as many as 50,000 people per day toured the Louvre in the busiest summer months.
