    The Louvre Museum of Miraco




    Located in the beautiful city of Mertz, Miraco. The Louvre museum the largest and museum in Miraco and one of the most (if not the most famous) museum in Europe. A central landmark of the city, it is located along the east bank of the Seine river. Nearly 35,000 objects from prehistory to the 21st century are exhibited over an area of 60,600 square metres. Originally known as the Louvre Palace, a military fortress constructed by Phillip II during the 12th century CE and was later used as the royal home until the rule of Louis XIV who moved the Royal Palace to Versailles leaving the Louvre Palace as a place to store accumulated artefacts and to display his wealth. The Palace's original military intent allowed it to safeguard itself throughout the various eras of turmoil in Miracan history including the the First and Second Miracan revolution (and the subsequent overthrow of Louis XVI) which made it one of the most perfect places to house a museum in Mertz.

    Today the museum boasts various collections, one of the largest in Europe with exhibits such as paintings, drawings, decorative art, sculptures, archeological artefacts including Egyptian Antiquities; Near Eastern Antiquities; Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities.
