Beneath The Louvre's Glass Pyramid

I've always wondered what lies beneath the The Louvre's glass pyramid. I've seen numerous photos of it, but hardly any reveals what lies beneath it. Is it just a structure to make The Louvre's compound look pretty?

So when I was in Paris in November last year, I made it a point to visit The Louvre to find out what lies beneath its iconic glass pyramid.

The glass pyramid has become synonymous with The Louvre, giving the museum its identity. It's like looking at the Eiffel Tower and you know for sure it's Paris. 

The glass pyramid is actually an entrance into The Louvre:

The Louvre is one of the most popular museums in the world, so expect queues that goes on forever. 

When you reach the entrance of the pyramid, you'll need to scan your bag before entering the museum.

Now here's the revelation on what lies beneath the pyramid:

Tadaaaa .... It's the lobby ... There's a separate wing on each side of the lobby that leads to different sections of The Louvre. 

Look up and admire the sky from beneath the pyramid. I love that natural light fills the museum. 

So the mystery of what lies beneath The Louvre's glass pyramid has been solved, not that it's a huge mystery anyway ;-)
