Top 100 Most Visited Art Museums

The 100 most visited art museums in the world, listed here with photos. These are the most popular art museums based on overall attendance including all specific exhibitions. The top-ranked museum on this list, unsurprisingly the Louvre, had over 8.5 million visitors in 2010; the bottom item, Tokyo's National Museum of Modern Art, had a still-impressive total of just under 500K attendees, according to 2010 attendance figures from theartnewspaper.com. Worldwide art museum attendance has grown steady in recent years, though museum budgets as a whole have been cut.
