Musée du Louvre, Paris

Annual Visitors: 9,334,000

The world’s largest museum is both the subject of ongoing architectural controversy—not everyone agrees with the 1989 addition of I. M. Pei’s 69-foot-high glass pyramid entrance—and an art-lover’s wonderland of some 35,000 masterworks. Throngs parade through the former 12th-century palace to see such famous highlights as Leonardo da Vinci’s smiling La Gioconda, a.k.a. Mona Lisa—a painting that, rumor has it, was originally commissioned by François I to hang in his château at Fontainebleau.

    It is a lovely photo but it always seemed strange to me that they have that glass pyramid on such a beautiful old building. I would have thought it better to have it as a stand alone building or part of a more modern museum. Yes, it is iconic but to me it will always look out of place.

  2. Princess Leah says:

    I do LUFFS the mix of the old and new, butt, what I WANTS more than anything is to go over there on the Eurostar and visit it….if only they let Princess Pups on the train sigh
    Loves and licky kisses

    When we looked at the picture, we didn’t noticed the piramide in the first place, I think we saw right through it…MOL 😀 It’s a beautiful place, it doesn’t need a pyramide at all 😺 Pawkisses for a Happy Wordless Wednesday 🐾😽💞

  4. Rosey says:

    I would love to return on a family trip with all of my kids. I don’t mind the pyramid. I.M. Pei did the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame building too, which looks like one big pyramid in part. I like that too. 🙂

  5. meowmeowmans says:

    We really enjoyed the Louvre when we visited in person. The pyramid did seem a bit odd, but in person, I kind of felt like “it worked.” 🙂

    Sandee, thank you for sharing this great, memory sparking photo. And thank you for hosting! Have a great Wednesday!

    I am one of those not in agreement with the 1989 addition of I. M. Pei’s 69-foot-high glass pyramid entrance at the Louvre. I would’ve much preferred a cube 😉

  7. -Eugenia says:

    The pyramid is a stunning structure but seems out of place against the existing old building. But, then I guess it’s another one of those “art is in the eye of the beholder” things. Happy Wednesday!

  8. DrillerAA says:

    I suppose that if the Pei addition appeared to be physically attached to the original structure then it would be appropriate to more closely match the existing facade. However, if you view the glass pyramid as simply the largest outdoor sculpture at the museum it is a little easier to understand. Personally, I would rather see this complete departure of style than to try to match the existing masterpiece and fall woefully short. Have a blessed day.

  9. Debbie D. says:

    It seems out of place, to me. When we visited The Louvre in 1966, it wasn’t there and looked much better without it. Happy #WW to you. Thanks for hosting this link party!

    • Sandee says:

      I’m thinking I would like to see it someplace other than here too. Takes away from the history. You’re most welcome for the hosting. 🙂

  10. Jan K says:

    It’s such an impressive place! While the pyramid is pretty cool, I also feel it just doesn’t fit in with the old building.
    I wonder how long it takes to actually see everything in there?

  11. Caz / InvisiblyMe says:

    Such an incredible place. I wonder how long it would take to look around all of the masterpieces, you could be in there for hours and never fully appreciate the beauty. I actually quite like the pyramid, though I can see why some find it too contemporary and ill-fitting. x

  12. caren gittleman says:

    I didn’t check but I think that I. M. Pei is also the architect who designed the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. It’s a pyramid just like the one featured above! Have a great day! xxoxoxo

  13. Jody Joy says:

    Wow 😳 that place is freaking huge. I would LOVE to walk (well get pushed) through this museum, that would be awesome I think. I would love to have the money just to go see it, lol! Have a wonderful day Sandee. Love you bunches ❤

  14. XmasDolly says:

    Oh boy, if walls could talk is what I always say!!! WOW! What a place to see & what I wouldn’t give to see it! If I lived there I would spend a lifetime in this place seeing it every day and I’m sure I still wouldn’t have seen everything. Awesome & thanks for sharing! Hope all your dreams come true & that you’re having a wonderful day my friend! Hugs & love U lots!!!!

    • Sandee says:

      We’re heading to the boat this afternoon. So, we’ll be boating this weekend. We didn’t go last weekend because of high winds and rain. This weekend it’s just rain. Oh well. Scritches to all your babes. 🙂

  15. lisa says:

    The addition does seem very inconsistent with the rest of the architecture. But, it does serve as a conversation starter! I’d love to spend the day (or four) wandering through the halls of this museum and soaking up the art culture!

  16. Jen says:

    When I went about a million years ago, the workers were on strike and I didn’t get in 🙁 So this year in April when Sam and I head there that is first on my list!
