The former President François Mitterand wanted it, so the Chinese-American architect Ieoh Ming Pei made it! Opened on the 30th March 1989, the Louvre Pyramid marked a turning point in the history of the Louvre Museum, which occupies the former royal palace. The structure is made of metal, as well as 603 diamonds and 70 triangles of plastic glass, and is located in the heart of the court of Napoléon. It has become an unmissable monument of Parisian architecture, in front of which visitors like have their photo taken. Underneath the Pyramid; the welcome hall of the Louvre, the ticket office, museum boutiques, restaurants, a post office and the Carrousel du Louvre shopping centre...

Times: The opening times for the Pyramid are the sale as the Louvre Museum.


Access to the Pryamid, shopping centre and boutiques is free.
