  • This may be an off shoot of the Louvre in Paris but it's completely unique. The main gallery is breath taking and the artefacts beautifully displayed, allowing you to wander through time from one end....  more »
  • What a great place! Bits of the Louvre in Paris have been transported here to a vast hangar-like building. Admission is free, there is a good little cafe, parking is also free with a bit of a walk...  more »

  • Excellent and well worth a visit. Great art. Impressive building. Helpful staff and useful facilities. Road signage to the gallery is confusing. There is a limited amount of disabled parking but you have to work to get it. It's guarded too carefully (a bit like Tate modern in London) on site cafeteria is fine but whoever designed it needs to attend a course on space and people management. Overall great. Thank you.
  • I love the ease of getting to the Louvre-Lens. Once there, the layout of the artefacts and art is thoroughly and superbly done. You never feel rushed to complete your visit. Get the audio guide and browse your way through history. Best of all there is no queue.
  • A unique museum. A stunning gallery of some of the best and peculiar art of every human period since the writing invention, all displayed along a time line on the modern structure that hosts the collection.
  • Great way to spend a half day without the crowds at its parent museum in Paris. They give children an activity sheet for them to find and search various objects around the museum
  • Great museum a bit small but nice park and restaurant too
