The Louvre is home to over 480,000 works, and now, art enthusiasts see them all without ever leaving their home. The Paris museum is virtually opening its doors to give people from across the globe entry to its 782,910 square feet from behind their computer screens for free. Updated daily, the new collections database includes pieces from the museum's eight curatorial departments along with long-term long items and MNR or National Museums Recover works which include items recovered after WWII that are pending return to the legitimate owners. Remote visitors can explore the collection through an interactive map or simply use the website's search engine and advanced search form to find specific pieces. Hopefully, in the future, digital guests will make the trip to view the art in person.
