The Louvre Pyramid (Pyramide du Louvre) is a large glass and metal pyramid designed by Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei, surrounded by three smaller pyramids, in the main courtyard (Cour Napoléon) of the Louvre Palace (Palais du Louvre) in Paris. The large pyramid serves as the main entrance to the Louvre Museum. Completed in 1989, it has become a landmark of the city of Paris.

    An amazing place - would take a week to see just a fraction of the treasures held here. Obviously the main draw is the 'Mona Lisa' but please, please look at the other arrowed it is and education and an experience in its own right to see such beautiful artwork. You can hire wheel chairs for the less able and the museum is designed the accommodate their needs. Range of places to get coffee and a sandwich in the museum and full dining offers too.

    Massive collection of different sculptures! The museum is very big and crowded. Collection of paintings in here is just amazing, very detailed! They also offer audio guide which is useless if you try to follow the map, instead just use the code to learn the background of some of the sculptures. Must visit if you love art!

    The glass pyramid is a great landmark, apt meeting point and nicely managed entry point into Louvre. But, architecturally it stands apart from rest of the grand structure, sort of invades the courtyard, takes away a bit of original beauty. The reason people end up liking is the photo op and familiarity created by Dan Brown's famous fiction.

    An interesting addition to the court of the Louvre museum. Though I prefer the Garden of the Tuileries across the street.

    The pyramid is a captivating work of art. I would've taken better shots though if the place weren't riddled by lots of tourists. But alas, that's the reality of such marvelous tourist spots in Paris. Still, it is a remarkable place to see. And also, don't forget that there's an inverted one somewhere underground. You have to go find a nearby staircase to see the reverse one. If you really want to have a great shot of the pyramid, go there in the evening when there aren't much tourists and the lights are on. But take heed not to go too late as you may miss your bus and/or train rides home. There are many Pokemon Go stops and gyms here. If you're a tourist, I suggest you go to the downstairs area because they have free wifi there.
