There are many things that make the Louvre Museum in Paris, France, unique. There is no other museum in the world where you'd have to walk eight miles to see everything. Many famous paintings, including Mona Lisa, are kept there. While many people might know about the Louvre, not everyone knows it wasn't always a museum. In this book, we will go way back, back before the Louvre held paintings, before kings or Nazis lived inside. We'll go all the way back to when it was a fortress on a hill, built to defend Paris from Viking invader, then trace its architectural history through I.M. Pei's breathtaking new entrance, the Louvre Pyramid. Book jacket.
