Help me with these sentences.

I have a difficulty on reading, so please help me translate the following sentences

and answer me some questions as well. Thank you very much!

A Museum Fit for a King(What does the word "Fit" mean?

Does it mean "To be appropriate to")

The Louvre is made up of several different buildings

that were added over many centuries.

(What does added mean here?)

During his reign, King Henry IV added a huge section call the Grande Galerie.

This made the Louvre one of the biggest buildings in the world at that time.

But the Louvre was not done growing yet!

(What does "growing" mean? What speech is it?

Does it mean the Louvre kept building,so it would grow?)

Some of the most famous works of art ever created are

on display at the Louvre.

(I don't understand the structure of this sentence.

( I am confused with the words are, on display. Please explained it for me.)

已更新項目:

    A Museum (that is) Fit for a King

    The above sentence has omitted "that is", that is why you kind of confuse how can "fit" be used this way. "fit" is used as an adjective, it means "恰當的,相稱的"

    What does added mean here?

    "added" means "to join or unite so as to bring about an increase or improvement".

    You probably got confused by "over many centuries". What it tried to say is "The Louvre is not build at one time, but gradually added on over many centuries" As I know the latest addition was done by Chinese American I.M. Pei (貝聿銘) : 1989年:法國巴黎羅浮宮擴建工程

    Does it mean the Louvre kept building, so it would grow?

    Yes, you are right, King Henry IV didn't just add "the Grande Galeri", but other buildings too.

    I am confused with the words are, on display.

    It is NOT "words", but "works". "Works" here means "art works". In a word, the sentence means "There are many famous art works are shown at the Louvre.

    Cookie! I understand your frustration, but this is matter of tenacity. Whoever can stick around longer will prevail. Besides, being assigned to be 板主, I have the added privilege to hide their ads. Even though it is a passive way, but it is still better than having them all over the place.

    Talking about this, I wonder, do you know about "humble bee"? I have not seen him around for a while. He was very enthusiastic in condemning those ads.

    片語 fit for a king: good enough even for a king; very good.

    A Museum Fit or a King 應該是文章標題,或可譯為「皇室標準的博物館」

    DSG你辛苦了, 這裡需要像你這樣熱心的人才能維持良性的互動. 我算是這裡的新同學, 上星期一時興起開始逛這裡. 廣告的確是最讓人掃興的東西, yahoo 應該想個有效的方法封鎖IP. 不然yahoo光廣告費就賺那麼多錢, 至少也該分一點給你們這些版主.

    看到這些詐騙廣告,連答題的興致都沒了

    版大的問題並不難,如果想要有理想的解說,就請先清理門戶,掃除掉這些廣告。

    就讓這些詐騙廣告繼續橫行吧! 知識版面像極了台灣社會的縮影

    隱藏不當內容更是鄉愿、缺乏擔當的作法,內容一旦有廣告之嫌即應予以刪除。

    Yahoo 台灣經營論壇,確不清理垃圾,整個論壇半數儲存的都是詐騙垃圾,走一趟香港,中國的知識討論區,也沒這麼這麼離譜。

    這樣的知識論壇,還能存活多久。

    Sorry,寫意見的時候 DaSaGwa 的答題還未出現。

    上述意見只針對Yahoo台灣本身
