The Louvre Museum in Paris is one of the largest and most visited museums in the world. It is housed in the Louvre Palace, which acted as the first residence of the French monarchy before Louis XIV moved to Versailles in 1678.

The Louvre Museum in The War That Came Early Edit

The Louvre Museum was damaged by air and shell fire during the terror bombing campaign over Paris that preceded and followed the failure of the Wehrmacht to take the French capital in early 1939.
