The Louvre is back.

After being toppled from its spot as the world's most visited museum in 2016, the Paris institution has regained its No. 1 position.

The venerable museum -- home to masterpieces including "Venus de Milo," the "Winged Victory of Samothrace" and Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa" -- welcomed 8.1 million visitors in 2017, a nearly 10% increase over its 2016 attendance numbers.

Those figures were released in the 12th annual Theme Index and Museum Index collaboration between the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) and AECOM.
