Home>Collection & Louvre Palace>Online Tours>Hall Napoléon

The vast lobby beneath I. M. Pei's Pyramid centralizes and facilitates access to the museum. Approved in 1981 and opened in 1989, the rigorous geometry of its square ground plan and diagonals is punctuated by escalators leading to the public galleries, and by the spiral staircase descending from the Cour Napoléon.
