Discover the Louvre otherwise: a Louvre of glass and light, with a resolutely contemporary architecture; a Louvre whose elegant and innovative museography offers you a unique visitor experience.

Located on a former coal mining site, the museum fits harmoniously into its environment, whose fragile beauty and diversity have been preserved.
The Galerie du temps is the heart of the Louvre-Lens. It presents more than 200 masterpieces from the Louvre collections, in a spectacular space of 3000 m², and offers a unique journey through the history of art, from the invention of writing in Mesopotamia to 4th millennium BC until the industrial revolution in the middle of the 19th century.
Each year, temporary exhibitions of international stature put a whole new perspective on the collections of the Louvre, in contrast with the Gallery of Time, and can accommodate works from around the world.
The Louvre-Lens Museum is also and above all a place of life, offering a wide range of activities and tours accessible to all.
