Poll finds Louvre the most visited museum worldwide

Older art beat newer art for bragging rights as Paris's Louvre drew more visitors last year than its local contemporary-art rival, the center Pompidou, according to an Art Newspaper survey.
The Louvre led all museums worldwide with 8.3 million visitors in 2007. The center Pompidou attracted 5.5 million visits, putting it in second place on a list of the best-attended museums compiled by the London-based paper for its March issue.
Tate Modern on the Thames in London counted 5.2 million entrants, followed by the British Museum, with 4.8 million, and New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, with 4.5 million, the paper said.
This is the Art Newspaper's first survey of attendance. By asking museums to count visitors for the calendar year, it offers a better comparison than was available previously. The survey doesn't, however, distinguish between museums that charge for admission and those that don't.
