To enter the world’s largest museum you pass through I. M. Pei’s controversial 21m glass pyramid- a startling though effective contrast of the ultramodern against the palace’s classical lines.
The large pyramid is accompanied by three small ones.
Commissioned by the late president François Mitterand and completed in 1989, the pyramid allows sunlight to shine on an underground reception area with a complex of shops and restaurants.
It seems to be a good choice for wedding pictures.
