Musée des Arts décoratifs

If you are visiting the Louvre, don't forget to visit the Musée des Arts Decoratifs. The period rooms are full of beautiful textiles, ceramics, glass, and furniture, and the hushed Galerie des bijoux provides a quiet and intimate viewing experience that is a welcome change of pace from the crowds in the main museum.
