"Napoleon III Apartments" Louvre Tip by suhadis

Louvre, Paris: 796 reviews and 1,585 photos

Your eyes will be treated to the most elaborated rooms of the museum literally fit for a King! You'll see lots of red and gold in the decor of the rooms.

The rooms in the Ministry of State, opened in 1861 in the Aile Richelieu, have retained their decor of gold, stuccos, marble, bronze, silk and velvet. They also feature ornate painted ceilings. Running parallel to the small rooms, the entrance gallery leads to the large hall (the "salon-théâtre"), the small dining room, and the large dining hall.
