This museum has a long history.  First as a fortress built by King Philippe-August in 1190 to provide protection against the Vikings, then replaced by a Renaissance building built by Francois I, it continued to be modified and enlarged by four centuries on French kings and emperors.  The last addition was the Pyramid Entrance opened in 1989.  The museum houses a extensive collections of paintings, sculpture, and items of historical interest.  Pictures are not allowed of many items.

The collections are much to extensive to cover adequately in this venue.  I have limited my presentation to a few examples of sculpture and antiquities.
