Virtual Tours of the Louvre

Learning about the Louvre is one of the few things that I remember from my one year of middle school French. (That's more a reflection on me than on my teacher). That year my teacher showed us slides of art work from the Louvre as well as the building itself. Eighteen years later, students don't have to watch old slideshows of art from the Louvre, they can now go on their choice of eleven different virtual Louvre tours.

Applications for Education
The virtual tours of the Louvre could be used in art courses as well as European history courses.
