Distinguished architect I. M. Pei has constructed this 450-seat, oak-paneled auditorium. It fuses state-of-the-art audiovisual technology with world-class architecture evolving into one of the Louvre 's grandest structures. The auditorium offers a multitude of programs including lectures, concerts, and exhibitions. Children are also catered to as this space was originally intended to introduce young ones to the museum's famous collections.
I loved it!!! All I have to say is that it is a must see!!! I loved the Mona Lisa and there were many other interesting paintings and sculptures!!! I would also like to say that I think it is the best mueseem in the world!!!
The Louvre relies mostly on it's reputation. Everything is in French with no translations, therefore seeing priceless pieces of art mean nothing since you don't know what you are looking at. Unfortunately if you go to Paris you have to go to the Louvre just to say you went but if you have a choice, I would recommend the Musee d'Orsay instead. This museum is the best in Paris with the Monet, Manet, and other impressionists. Pieces are written in english and the layout is easy to follow. If you go to the Louvre you should only go out of your way for 3 items...Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, and Winged Victory. Anything else just really isn't worth the effort. Trust me, Musee d'Orsay is the way to go!
I thought the museum was great. I saw the real Mona Lisa. I saw Nike which means more then going to the store and buying the shoes. I believe no one should go to paris and not tour the greatest museum on the planet.
culture, culture, culture, lots of it.
All periods of history in just one awesomely big place.
Put on your most comfortable walking shoes. The visit is at minimum a couple of hours, but if you're an art fan or just begining to discover, you should plan on a two day visit. Teusday is the best day of the week.
THE Mona Lisa truly in front of my two eyes.
