One whole day won't be enough to visit all the treasures presented in this former French kings palace. If your entire stay in Paris is not dedicated to the museum, you'll have to make a choice between the Western art from the Middle Ages to 1848 (paintings, sculptures, artistic objects and graphic arts) and ancient civilisations (Oriental, Egyptian, Greec, Etruscan ans Roman antiquities); Islamic, African, Asian, Oceanic and North and South American arts!

Entrance times: 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.(later wednesday and friday).

Closed on tuesday. Free under 18 years old.
