If you're going to the Louvre Museum anytime soon, watch your wallet.
The world's busiest museum reopened Thursday with the presence of uniformed police officers aimed at deterring aggressive gangs of pickpockets who target visitors and staff, Agence France-Presse reports.
About 200 museum workers walked off the job Wednesday and forced the museum to shut down, leaving disappointed visitors without a chance to see the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo and other iconic artwork at the Paris museum that drew more than 10 million visitors last year.
During the one-day closure, the museum posted this note on its website: "Due to exceptional circumstances, the Louvre museum is currently closed. We apologize for the inconvenience and will keep you informed when the museum opens again." No further reference to the closure has been posted online.
