There were many objects and varied art pieces to see and enjoy, with lots of space, as it was a quiet day. I liked the history of humanity from about 4000 bc to almost the present day - very unique and how it was displayed...More

I was first introduced to this museum by my French friends but we only had a limited time to see everything so decided to return last week. Interesting, very modern architecture and surroundings . The main exhibition is flowing effortlessly in a huge open space...More

A superb display of wonderful objects from the Louvre in a time-line includes ancient art, sculpture, ceramics, paintings all of the highest quality and beautifully shown. Temporary exhibitions. Neutral grey building forms a good background to the art.

I first visited this museum just after it opened and loved it, so returned this year. It is tidier now, but the exhibits are the same and just as interesting. It is free, amazingly, as are the little galleries at the end of the main...More

Modern and comtemporary in design and beautifully manage exhibits to allow you space, time and a sence of place to assimilate the exhibits on show. It is also free with the opportunity to make a donation - not forced or stressed. Tips. Use the clockroom,...More

I think for me the museum layout was some of the most impressive part. It feels like something straight out of a sci-fi movie. However, it's also got a really interesting collection and some fun visiting exhibits. Not much else to do in Lens, but...More

Wonderful: building and setting are amazing, collection is minimalistic but spot on and the approach is educationally top. One comment: it is hard to find by car and even harder to find the right parking entrance.

Every part just the same as the home museum in Louvre, Paris. Parking dreadful. But it's well worth the long walk if you can't park nearby.

I know it was free until the end of 2016. Do you know what the admission charges are now? Thanks

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.
Please could you tell me where you parked? I have bad knees and want to save them for walking round the museum!

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... More
