Visit the Louvre from Your Sofa: The Mona Lisa and 350,000 Other Works Are Now Online!

One of the largest and most important museums in the world and one of the most famous works of art, the Mona Lisa, are now available online!

The Louvre has more than 350,000 works of art, which it has made fully available on its online platform. In addition, a new, more user-friendly website has been launched, for both professional researchers and all art lovers.

There are over 482,000 items to see: not only works from the Louvre, but also the Musée National Eugène-Delacroix and sculptures from the Tuileries and Carrousel gardens. In addition, there are also works from the Musées Nationaux Récupération which were recovered after the Second World War and entrusted to the Louvre until they were returned to their rightful owners.

To use the site, you can choose simple or advanced search, curatorial departments entries or thematic albums. In addition, an interactive map helps visitors prepare or extend their visit and allows them to explore the museum room by room. The museologists will also regularly update the database of the works.

A second way to see the Louvre's artwork is its new website. It is divided into three sections and focuses on the collections and the sumptuous interiors in which they are presented. Then you can visit the former palace by going from room to room and observe the works of art of the world along the way. The site can be comfortably visited on a tablet or computer, but the most convenient way to do it is on a smartphone.

The new website for the Louvre is available HERE, and the new website for the Louvre collection is available HERE.
