Become a patron of the arc du Carrousel!
Napoléon built it, now let's save it!
Built by Napoleon I on his victorious return from Austerlitz, the arc du Carrousel is a masterpiece of the greatest architects, sculptors and craftsmen of the Empire. Today, its future is at stake, unless it undergoes conservation work. Given the scale of the project, the Musée du Louvre is asking for your support to save this exceptional monument, emblematic of the Louvre and Paris.
Thank you all for your support!

Join the Tous mécènes ! campaigns
Launched in 2010 for the acquisition of The Three Graces by Lucas Cranach, the Tous mécènes ! crowdfunding campaigns have become a major annual event. Each year, several thousand of you have contributed to the conservation or acquisition of major artworks such as the Winged Victory of Samothrace in 2013, the Breteuil Table, also known as the Teschen Table, in 2014, Saly's Cupid in 2015, the mastaba of Akhethotep in 2016, or King Francois I's Book of Hours in 2017. Your commitment to the Louvre is vital.
Through these campaigns, you play an active part in safeguarding and enriching our heritage. Discover the new Louvre campaign each year in October on www.tousmecenes.fr/en!
