There are museums so vast and enthralling that you could never see every treasure on display during just one visit. In addition, if you try to see the most famous pieces of artwork, the people in the crowd may elbow you or get in the way.
Here are some practical tips for visiting two of the world’s top museums:
The Louvre, Paris:
This museum has 35,000 works of art, and attracts more visitors each year than any other museum.
- Do not go on the first Sunday of the month when admission is free
- Avoid the main entrance at the Pyramid
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City
With a permanent collection of more than 2 million works of art, The Met is the largest art museum in the United States.
- Avoid going on the weekend days because they tend to be very busy
- Any full-priced ticket is valid for three consecutive days
