The visit of the Palais du Louvre is always pleasant, offering a new vision of the statues in the Cour Marly and the Cour Puget and the Louvre Pyramid designed by Ieoh Ming Pei.
Covering over 350,000 sqm, the former royal palace becomes the main museum of arts of the Republic in 1793. Over time, the Louvre will house masterpieces from all over the world including The Wedding Feast at Cana by Veronese, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, the Venus de Milo, Liberty Leading the People by Delacroix, The Raft of the Medusa by Géricault and Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci...
All these works will be visible for free for Museums Night. By the way, from 6 p.m. ti 8 p.m., students from about twenty classes will present litterary, and dramaturgical restitutions of some works, studied in class as part of the La Classe, l'Oeuvre operation!
Last year, the Louvre attracted 15,000 visitors, allow some waiting time or enjoy the Louvre free late-night openings planned on every first Saturday of the month!
