The Louvre in Lens

An ambitious project to locate an outpost of Paris Musée du Louvre in unfashionable Northern France opens to the public on 12 December 2012

The Louvre-Lens is  sited in Lens (62 Pas-de-Calais, Nord-Pas-de-Calais) about 100km from Calais.

This is in the old coal-mining district, notable for its towering conical terrils (slag heaps) which dominate the otherwise dull landscape, visible from the A26 and A1 autoroutes.

Lens is also notable for its football stadium – the Stade Felix Bollaert is nearby.

This is an exciting venture which will enable the Louvre Museum to display many of its core treasures in a new and exciting space, whilst being accessible to millions of potential visitors in northern France and tourists.
