The Louvre reopens from May 19, 2021. From this moment on, you will be able to enjoy Mona Lisa, the Apollon Gallery, Middle-Eastern, Greek, and Roman antiques, without forgetting about the building itself, castle of the Kings of France until Louis XIV. Good news, the ticketing service is open!

The Louvre is one of the museums the most visited in the world, and for good reason, it enjoys some heritage gems including the famous Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and Liberty Leading the People. To give you an idea, the Louvre includes 35,000 works displayed over 70,000sqm surface, naming 400 rooms, and 14km of corridors! If our maths are right, it would take 96 hours to fully visit the museum, that is to say 4 days. Good news for fans, the world's most famous museum reopens from May 19, 2021 and the ticketing service is open!

And the soon to be a thousand-year-old monument covers all historic periods: Medieval Louvre, vestige of the former Middle-Aged fortress, as well as the Apollon Gallery, Napoleon III's apartments, vestiges of the Royal palace.

And the rooms features collections of antiques from the Middle East, Greece and Rome, Egyptian antiques, collections of Islamic arts, as well as European furtniture and art items, European and French sculptures from the Middle Ages to the 19th century, including a big part of the collection being devoted to French, Italian, Spanish, British and Northern European paintings. A genuine gold mine for history and art nerds.

When it reopens, you can enjoy the following exhibitions:
