The department is home to a collection of amazing artworks representing the Roman, Etruscan, and Greek civilizations.
It spans the period from Neolithic times to the 6th century AD.

Near Eastern Antiquities

This department spans 9,000 years from prehistory to the early Islamic period and encompasses an area from North Africa to Central Asia, and from the Black Sea to the Arabian peninsula. A must see collection!


Opened in 1824 and devoted to “modern” sculpture, the rooms gradually became the Department of Medieval, Renaissance, and Modern Sculpture.

The Pavillon de l’Horloge opened its doors in 2016 to address questions visitors may have about the history of the Louvre. What traces can still be observed from the significant periods of construction of the palace? Which kings used to live there? Why the palace became a museum? It is a great place to visit for the ones who wish to learn more about the Louvre itself.
