Full Description

The Louvre has redesigned their website and added an online collection database. For the first time ever, the Louvre’s entire art collection is available to search online. The updated catalog boasts more than 480,000 entries, from rare items stowed away in storage to the iconic Venus de Milo and Winged Victory of Samothrace. The digital database is free to browse, but offerings are not open access, meaning users cannot directly download, share or reuse the images.  Click here for the online gallery.

Viewers can also click through an interactive map of the museum, virtually walking through the cavernous halls of the Renaissance castle or the sleek steel-and-glass pyramid designed by American architect I.M. Pei in 1989.  Click here for an interactive map.

There is also a section of the website entitled Louvre Kids.  This area features stories about the Louvre and its artwork.    Click here for Louvre Kids.
