The Louvre Museum - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in Paris

Based in the prestigious Louvre Palace, the former royal residence and the biggest palace in Europe, the Louvre is the largest and most visited museum in the world! At this temple of culture in Paris' 1st arrondissement, near the Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre Metro station, a variety of sumptuous and diverse art collections unfurl before visitors' eyes. No fewer than 35,000 works of art, spread across over 73,000 m² of rooms, are all on display to delight lovers of paintings, sculptures and other art objects. The collections are grouped into eight departments, Egyptian Antiquities, Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities, Oriental Antiquities, Paintings, Sculptures, Art Objects, Islamic Arts and Graphic Arts. Ancient statues, medieval objects, paintings from the Italian Renaissance… The variety of exhibits on display is impressive! Every year, millions of visitors flock there to see some of the world's most famous works of art, such as the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, the Venus of Milo, the Coronation of Napoleon by David, or The Raft of the Medusa by Géricault.

Temporary exhibitions as well as conferences, themed tours and concerts are also on offer all year round. Yet the museum's beauty does not only reside in its permanent and temporary exhibitions. The grandiose and majestic Louvre Palace is also remarkable for its iconic glass and metal pyramid, beneath which the entrance hall is located. Erected in the Cour Napoléon by Ieoh Ming Pei in 1989, it brings a touch of modernity to the complex.
