Le Musée du Louvre

pic nicked from Thank you!
We came to view Dutch masters, but frankly, they are few and far between at the Louvre.
The latest acquisition, two early Rembrandt full-length portraits, are currently exposed before travelling to the Rijksmuseum in June, so they are worth seeing.

Otherwise, the Louvre excels more in history (which we skipped this time) than in art; at least that's my humble opinion. Luckily, the Mona Lisa is visible from afar, so you can peek casually at her while elbowing your way towards Caravaggio, David or Goya.  

Maerten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit, by Rembrandt van Rijn, ca 1634
