The Paris Louvre received over 10 million visitors in 2018, a record its managers partly attributed Thursday to "Apeshit," a Beyonce video that used the former royal palace, and famous works like the Mona Lisa, as decor. Some 10.2 million people visited the museum last year, a 25 percent increase over 2017, which its president Jean-Luc Martinez also linked to a stunning tourism recovery in Paris after a slump caused by a spate of terror attacks.In 2017, the Louvre just edged the National Museum of China to remain the most-visited museum in the world, with 8.1 million visitors compared to 8 million for the Beijing space and 7.3 million for New York's Metropolitan Museum.
