From Royal Palace to Museum of world renown

This magnificent structure, which was originally born as fortress in the 12th century to protect the city from Vikings attaks, became later on home of an extensive art collection as well as royal recidence for a limited period of time. Through the years the Louvre became object of many changement and renovations, especially under Napoleon I.

It was during the French Revolution that the National Assembly finally decided to decree the Louvre as public museum and to open his gates the 10th of August 1793 with an exibition of 537 paintings.

Later on, under president Mitterrand commission, the iconic glass pyramyd designed by archithect leoh Ming Pei was added to the original building becoming the symbol of the museum itself.
