So far we have visited a plethora of museums including the Louvre, Musee D’Orsay, the Chernuschi, and many more. For those of you fellow art lovers I feel that it is important to know about the crowds in museums over the summer; especially in those popular museums like the Louvre. I recommend either going to the busier museums early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid crowds so you get the opportunity to do some contemplative looking at your favorite works. There are many museums in Paris that are house museums or that used to be the homesstudios of the artist. If you are planning on going to one of these house museums I can not stress to you enough to bring a hand fan!!! Those houses are hot and definitely not climate controlled so if you are an AC lover like myself you may want to consider inventing in one ($1.50 at Goodwill). I am having a blast in Paris and I am learning so much about the history of the museum in French culture and politics. Stay tuned !
