The Louvre: An Age-Old Institution Looks to the Future
Heir to the century of the Enlightenment and the French Revolution, the Louvre was quickly accepted as the "museum among museums;" and since then it has remained a model and a recognized authority.
At Work in the Louvre
The Louvre is home to a host of different activities and specialisms. Most of its 2,000 staff, including curators, visitor services personnel etc., are public-sector employees. A range of other services, from electrical maintenance to graphic design and fire prevention, are contracted out.
