The good thing in Paris is that most of the museum and tourist spots are within walking distance. On the way we walked to Musee de Louvre, we enjoyed our walk along the Siene river.

The Musee de Louvre was the Palace in the old days, it is huge, but not tall. Quite classic, except the later added glass pyramid.

Musee de Louvre. On my last visit, I said that I would revisit this museum one day. I had seen the three main artworks already. Of course I came visit again. Venus de Milo, The winged victory of Samothrace and Mona Lisa.

For the Mona Lisa, I found that it was more interesting to see those visitors.....what a huge crowd...

This time I actually wanted to see the Seated Scribe and some other paintings. The Seated Scribe is an important sculpture for analyzing the Egypt history and civilization.

This first picture is about the history of Rome and the next one is about the crown of Napolean, which was held in Reims.....

Should I dig down to see if The Da Vinci Code is correct?

After Louvre, we walked to Musee d'Orsay again. WTF was that it was close on Monday.......

As we suddenly have some spare time, we walked through the Alexander III bridge, overseeing the Musee de l'Armee

the Musee de l'Armee shows the military history and collection about army, weapon, etc. The most important "collection" is the tomb of Napoleon. His coffin was placed in the middle of the hall. Walking down 1 floor you can see it horizontally.

The armor room shows the armor used from hundred years ago. There are the armor of Japanese Shogun and even the cloths of Kin Lung (乾隆)
