Go Apes**t in Paris: You can now take the Beyonce and JAY-Z tour of The Louvre


Courtesy S Carter Enterprises/Roc Nation/Parkwood Entertainment/ColumbiaBeyonce and JAY-Z’s video for their Everything Is Love track “Apes**t” was filmed at one of the world’s most famous museums: The Louvre, in Paris.  Now, visitors to the museum can see all the paintings featured in the clip in real life, thanks to a new tour the museum is offering.

You can find the instructions for the 90-minute self-guided tour on the Louvre’s website.  It includes background and commentary on the 17 works of art featured in the video, including Leonardo Da Vinci’Mona Lisa, the famous Venus de Milo statue, Veronese‘s [veh roe NEE see] Wedding Feast at Cana, an 1800 painting titled Portrait of a Black Woman, and The Coronation of Napoleon, by Jacques-Louis David [dah-VEED].

The tour also explains exactly where to find each masterpiece — very handy, considering the Louvre covers more than 650,000 square feet and features some 35,000 works of art.

The Louvre has refused to reveal how much it charged Bey and Jay to film the video in the museum.
