Trip Report New Louvre

Jump to last reply

Not a trip report from me, but rather from The Guardian newspaper in the UK. The video and written reports on the new Louvre concern the trend for great art museums to spin off parts of their collection to satellite branches in unlikely locations (Guggenheim Bilbao, Pompidou Metz, the forthcoming Louvre Abu Dhabi.) Lens certainly sounds unlikely, looking at the mountains of mining rubble that dominate its horizon. The region provided financial support in hopes of a touristic resuscitation.
What’s genuinely astonishing is the minimalist design of the new Louvre offspring, in vivid contrast to its Paris parent. Not a single painting hangs on its walls. Everything is walk-around.
The city is a 1hr15 train ride from Gare du Nord and high on my list for my next Paris visit.
An exhibition described as “temporary” is installed through March. Closed Tuesdays.
