Home>Collection & Louvre Palace>Online Tours>The Musée du Louvre from the Seine

The view of the palace from the Seine takes in the entire facade of the Grande Galerie, together with the Flore wing. The Grands Guichets du Carrousel (formerly the museum's main entrance) were built by Lefuel in 1868–70. Today, they provide access to the Cour Napoléon from the riverside.
