The Louvre (website) is a Museum in Paris.
Official description from Louvre:
Heir to the century of the Enlightenment and the French Revolution, the Louvre was quickly accepted as the "museum among museums;" and since then it has remained a model and a recognized authority. Founded in 1793 as a museum for all, it celebrates humanity's long journey with the remarkable scope of a collection that spans thousands of years, reaches from America to the borders of India and China, and is highlighted by such iconic, universally admired works as the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and the Victory of Samothrace.
Dan's opinion:
Dipping baguettes in hot chocolate, the word for cheese, and the Louvre's glass pyramid are about all I still remember from several years of high school French.
