Visit the Louvre-Lens Museum

The Louvre-Lens

The Louvre-Lens Museum is coming to Lens in its complete richness and diversity.
A place dedicated to culture for everybody.

This new museum, made with glass and light in a green setting, will bring the most prestigious collections from the Louvre together. It will reveal the secret life of the pieces that are perpetually renewing. Resolutely forward-looking, it is installed in a contemporary structure made by the japanese architectural agency SANAA.

Have a walk in the museum’s park, a real landscaped setting in complete harmony with the museum, in which direction it will lead you. Then travel all over the 120-meters long Galerie du temps, where about 250 pieces from the Louvre, regularly renewed, are presented in a chronological way.

Discover from the opening of the museum its first temporary exhibition untilted “Renaissance”.
