The Louvre is a world-famous museum in Paris, France, that houses many artworks, such as the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, and the Winged Victory of Samothrace.
The Beatles as a group visited the Louvre on January 15, 1964, when they were in Paris for their first concerts in France at the Olympia Theatre. The visit was part of their sightseeing in Paris, which also included the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Notre Dame Cathedral. They were accompanied by their manager Brian Epstein, their road manager Neil Aspinall, and their photographer Dezo Hoffmann. They toured the museum and posed for some photos with the artworks. They also met some fans and signed some autographs. The fabs were impressed by the size and the beauty of the museum, but they also joked about some of the paintings and sculptures.

1961: John and Paul
Two years aerlier John Lennon and Paul McCartney travelled to Paris by train on Saturday 30 September 1961. John Lennon had been gifted £100 from his Aunt Elizabeth (‘Mater’) in Edinburgh ahead of his 21st birthday, which was coming up on 9 October 1961. John and Paul abandoned the other guys in The Beatles on September 30th, and ditched several gigs the group had lined up, to spend John’s birthday money on this journey. The plan was to go to Spain for a holiday, planning to hitch-hike from Paris. In the end they enjoyed Paris so much, they stayed. Their visit to Paris also included the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Moulin Rouge. Eventually, they returned home to Liverpool around October 14th and The Beatles played a gig the next day.
