TRAVEL TIDBITS: A new wing added to the Louvre

Adding another string of masterpieces to their already vast collection, the Louvre museum in Paris opened a new wing dedicated to Islamic Art. The museum was already home to several pieces of art, from the Islamic world, only now, it has its own wing. Spanning over 3,000 works from the 7th to 18th centuries, some being displayed for the first time, the wing is sprawled over two floors. The collections comprise artefacts, mosaics, carpets, ceramics and sculptures.

This new wing is open every day except Tuesday, from 9 am to 6 pm, with late night opening on Wednesday and Friday until 9:45 pm.
