The Louvre Museum

Originally a medieval fortress on the right bank of the Seine in the city’s 1st arrondissement. The Louvre is home to items spanning a period of nearly 5,000 years, from ancient cultures (Oriental, Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman) as well as Western and Islamic civilisations. Europe’s largest museum immerses its visitors in 460 000 works from around the world, including some major emblems of World Heritage such as the Venus de Milo, the Mona Lisa or the Eugène Delacroix painting, “La liberté guidant le peuple” ("Liberty Leading the People”). With 210,000 m2 including 60,600 m2 of galleries the Louvre hosts a wide variety of artworks: paintings, sculptures, sketches, ceramics, and archaeological artefacts amongst others. In fact, there’s so much to see that it would take at least 3 days to experience all that the Louvre has to offer.

Musée d’Orsay

Musée d’Orsay houses the World’s largest collection of Impressionist paintings and is Paris’s most visited museum. Designed to specialise in 19th century art the museum today is both airy and light, offering a central nave – where platforms once stood – covered by a restored glass platform roof with the original station clock still hanging proudly to remind travellers of the building’s past. In fact, “the main work of art at the Musée d’Orsay is the museum itself!” Where fans of the works of Manet, Degas, Monet, and Renoir come to bathe in their luminous and mood-driven pieces that reflect the life of the time, the museum brings impressionist artists’ snapshots of everyday life together under one roof. Boasting a range of sculptures, photos and other creative achievements the Musée d’Orsay is the place to visit for an in-depth and varied look at the Impressionist Movement.

Muséenational Picasso Paris

Located at the heart of Paris, in the Marais district, the Hôtel Salé is home to the Musée Picasso Paris, which features over 5000 of the Spanish master’s works. The 5000 art pieces — including 300 paintings and 300 sculptures — and tens of thousands archive pieces (sketches, drawing booklets…) are displayed in the entire mansion in series of 400.

Musée Jacquemart-André

The Musée Jacquemart-André is a private museum located at 158 Boulevard Haussmann in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. The museum was created from the private home of Édouard André (1833–1894) and Nélie Jacquemart (1841–1912) to display the art they collected during their lives. The collections brought together are some of the most remarkable in France: works from Flemish and German schools, detached frescoes, refined furniture and tapestries also find their place on the ground floor of the house. But Nélie Jacquemart devoted most of her attention to the Renaissance period in Florence and Venice. In fact, the first floor is devoted to Italian art during this period.

Hôtel des Invalides

Located in Pont Alexandre III, the Hôtel des Invalides was built in 1670, no foundation existed to house wounded and homeless veterans who had fought for France. Louis XIV, who was anxious about what would happen to soldiers that had served during his numerous campaigns, decided to build the Hôtel Royal des Invalides. It is one the most prestigious monuments in Paris. The Hôtel National des Invalides still retains its original function as a hospital and hospice for badly injured and disabled war veterans. As well as the Musée de l'Armée, it comprises the Musée des Plans-Reliefs and the Musée de l'Ordre de la Libération as two churches: the Eglise du Dôme, which houses the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte.

Paris Musée

Until January 2013, municipal museums were directly managed by the City of Paris. Since then, Paris Musées has incorporated in the same public institution the 14 City of Paris’ Museums. Paris Musées brings together all different departments working for museums. The advantage of having a unique entity is to be able to implement a more coherent strategy therefore allowing economies of scale and better interactions between museums.
