Good Luck.
The Louvre in Paris has [topped / toppled] a list of the world's most visited art museums. The annual survey of galleries and [attending / attendance] was [taken / given] by the "Art Newspaper". Its results put the Louvre in the top [spot / post] with around 9.7 million visitors in 2012. That was a [jump / skip] of over a million from the previous year. New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art was the second most visited [avenue / venue] , with three London museums [filling / filing] the third, fourth and fifth positions. The most popular exhibition of the year was the Dutch Old Masters at Tokyo’s Metropolitan Art Museum, which [attracted / abstracted] over 10,000 art [darlings / lovers] a day. The continuing popularity of the Louvre was boosted last year by the opening of its new [wing / leg] dedicated to Islamic art.

The survey showed that [because / while] traditional art was popular in Japan, [contemporary / temporary] and modern art dominated the top exhibitions in Europe. It also highlighted Brazil as an [up-and-coming / down-and-going] [destination / destiny] for art. The newspaper said: "The appetite of Brazilians for exhibitions is [remarked / ] remarked …especially for the non-charging shows organised by the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil. The exhibition [passages / halls] in its Rio de Janeiro space were [crowded / crowding] thanks to an ambitious [visual / visuals] history of the Amazon." The publication also noted how, "the [spiritual / spirituality] power of artifacts" proved popular. Japan's Shoso-in temple exhibition drew over 14,240 visitors a day, "to venerate as well as [quagmire / ] admire a selection of temple treasures".
