Musée du Louvre
I'd rather go to France and see all of this but even if I did I probably would miss something. The Louvre is a huge place and I suspect that without a week or more devoted to it you still wouldn’t be able to see everything. But even if you can’t get to Paris this app fixes the issue by bringing great works of art to your phone.
This app lets you take tours of the museum in several different languages (want to practice your French?) in video format focusing not only on the Lovre itself but allowing you to choose several of the most well known pieces at the Museum. It also allows you to explore the art itself, showing you first pictures of a piece and then telling you about the work, the technical information about the piece and even where to find it in the museum. This alone would make this app necessary for anyone intending to go to the Louvre in person. Why not plan out your trip to the Louvre while on the plane to France?
The app also allows you to tour the Palace itself, showing you the location of different places in the Palace as well as describing it in a few words for the short version of it’s history. Finally you’re given a ton of visitor information, how to get to the Palace, the plans, the open hours, fees and services and amenities.
You will want this if you’re heading to the Louvre and if you aren’t but wish you were. Do be careful though as I suspect this app will infect you with a very strong travel bug. Best to avoid this app if you already have the tendency to be struck by travel fever.
