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.
