There’s good news for Paris museum visitors; starting in 2015 some of the most popular attractions are expanding opening times to seven days a week. Instead of closing one day each week on Mondays or Tuesdays, the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay and the Palace of Versailles will be open every day.

And in other museum news, the long awaited Frank Gehry-designed Fondation Louis Vuitton art museum set in the Bois de Boulonge is finally set to official open one week from today. The largest private museum to open in Paris for three decades, the FLV will focus on 20th century and contemporary art, including large collections from Picasso, Warhol, Frank Serra, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst and Basquiat, as well as temporary exhibitions.
