The Louvre Museum is the world's largest art museum situated in Paris, France.

Amid the current Covid-19 pandemic the museum is shut with no visitors allowed. But thanks to the YouTube channel named ‘Wanderlust Travel Videos’, you can now take a virtual tour through the museum from your couch.

In this hour-long video you can explore the Denon Wing of the museum.

It starts with a walk around before accessing the museum floor and then goes on to the display of the Greek and Roman antiquities and its famous statues including Aphrodite, Vénus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrace, and The Virgin and Child with four Angels.

This is followed by the decorative paintings area from Spain, France, and Italy including the Mona Lisa.
