The Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay and other museums have been closed all weekend following Friday's terror attacks that killed 129. Culture Minister Fleur Pellerin said all museums in Paris and nearby towns will reopen Monday at 1200 GMT, following a minute of silence being observed across France in memory of the victims at 1100 GMT.
