About the Museum
The most legendary of the world’s great cultural institutions, this is the imperial treasure house par excellence, featuring countless masterpieces from the world’s great cultures – the Mona Lisa, Winged Victory of Samothrace and Venus de Milo, to name but a few – set in the vast splendour of one of the monarchy’s most stunning palaces. I. M. Pei’s iconic glass pyramid, installed in 1988, is the most visible sign of a new world standard of sophistication in presentation, scholarship and curatorial programming. Enter via the dedicated Priority Access line at the Louvre's Pyramid entrance, or use the Richelieu entrance for expedited access.
