Not only was it impossible to find the car park (the sign pointed in the wrong direction) but matters worsened when we arrived at the café at 13.15 only to find there was NO food. We purchased some already sliced baguette and 4 hot drinks...More
The main permanent exhibit is awesome. It is a trip through the history of art from ancient times to about the 1800’s with the most beautiful examples of art from the relevant periods and regions. It is a great opportunity to learn and see. I...More
The set-up of the main room in the museum is a travel through time and cultures from archaeological objects thousands of years old to paintings made near the French revolution. The room, or rather hall, is fairly large, but in all this is a rather...More
The architect and landscapers have done their best to make the Louvre Lens impressive from the outside. You may (like me) see it and think "it's huge, this is going to take ages". Do not fear, you will be out in under an hour as...More
On the site of an old colliery, in a very modern building, many many beautiful items which you can get very close to. Parking is a short walk away, there are paintings by many French and other European artists, David, Rubens, Reynolds and others as...More
Louvre Lens is the best place you can imagine to have a vieuw and to learn about the beginning of art from Sumer to the 19th century .A lot of valuable pieces of the storehouses of the Louvre are on display in one big area...More
Very comprehensive presentation history of Mediterranean cultures, gives excellent perspective. Housed in incredible building, well worth seeing on a stand-alone basis. Powerful demonstration of what you can do with an old, derelict coal mine.
Smaller than thought this dependence of the Louvre has only 200 pieces. Since the Louvre has such big depots, it is hideous that they are loaning such a small collection to Lens. The building is quite nice, the presentation alright - it is one big...More
The great strength of this museum is that there isn't an awful lot in it, so you don't feel compelled to wander around staring at a load of old stuff you'll forget the moment you leave.
Some really lovely pieces from the ancient Near East...More
Yes, this is different. First of all, the very idea is holistic: one acoustically and visually perfect exhibition hall, lit to perfection. Containing important archeological, artistic, and historic artifacts from the dawn of man to the modern era. Wonderful gift shop, friendly staff. Only problem...More
It's still free, until the end of 2017 at least. Delightful; there's just enough on display to let you look closely at every exhibit. Arranged in a timeline from ancient Rome, Egypt, Greece etc to about 100 years ago.

If you drive down Rue Paul Bert westwards past the Musee there is a parking area on the left hand side of the road. There is a huge parking area around the Stade Bollaert-Delelis but this entails a longer walk. There are drop off points on the road up to the Musee.
