The Louvre – from royal palace to one of the largest museums in the world

What awaits you on site


At 60,000 square metres, the Louvre in Paris is the third largest museum in the world. Originally a French royal palace, it now houses an extensive collection of around 380,000 works.

Get an overview of art from the Middle Ages to the 19th century! In addition to its most famous work of art, the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, the museum houses exhibits from ancient cultures such as the Oriental, Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman civilisations. In addition you will find exhibitions of works from Islam, Africa, Asia, Oceania, North and South America.

The architecture of the Louvre Museum building 

The architecture of the museum building is unique and world-famous. The pyramid of the Louvre Museum in particular has an outstanding and atypically minimalist architecture for Parisian museums. With its glass façade consisting of 603 diamond-shaped and around 70 triangular elements, the complex stands out in the midst of the otherwise detailed and historic buildings.

In 2012, the Louvre was the most visited museum in the world with around 10,000,000 visitors. With your Paris City Pass, you get priority entry.
