Rejoice lovers of the arts, the world's biggest museum, The Louvre is set to reopen after several days of closure owing to severe floods.

The closure reportedly cost the Louvre 1.5 million euros (about N340 million) in unsold tickets and denied 120,000 visitors.

In a statement released by the museum, it was revealed that 35,000 artworks were removed from storage areas and lower exhibition rooms considered at risk, then transferred back once the Seine River reached its peak on Saturday and danger from the worst flooding in three decades dissipated.

Yesterday, the Grand Palais museumalso reopened to the public following its initial closure owing to the Paris floods.

Paris experienced the worst flooding it has in recent times last week, which caused the Seine river to burst its banks.
