To view beautiful art can really touch your soul, and make you long for similar talents if you don't have them already. Musée du Louvre takes you to the heart of some of the best artwork in the world. You are given the chance to live, breathe and see art by the masters of old. This app is the first edition, and therefore, holds only a selection of the museum's fantastic exhibits. However, you are treated to commentaries, close-ups, details and videos that will give you much insight into each exhibit. You will be able to discover more detail about the selected piece of art, technical information as well as its exact location. I love the carousel feature of Musée du Louvre which takes you through the menu and each art piece. For example, I tapped on 'The Lacemaker' By Jan Vermeer. Then I tapped on the star in the lower right corner of this painting. It showed the background history of the piece, gave the art zoom capability, technical information and the location in the Louvre itself. I am honestly very impressed with this well-organized, attractive and exceptional app. Take some time today to savor the artwork of the world with Musée du Louvre.
"No wonder over 800 people visit the Louvre every year. The world's largest museum houses a fabulous collection of more than 30,000 works of art. Moreover, the building itself is in the very heart of Paris".
--Tip: This app will be handy to you if you travel to Paris to visit the Louvre, and if not, it will be a joy to savor at home.

As an HTML and Web design tool, select boxes are most useful when you don't need to show all the selections at once, such as when users select the state they live in.
