Yes, this is different. First of all, the very idea is holistic: one acoustically and visually perfect exhibition hall, lit to perfection. Containing important archeological, artistic, and historic artifacts from the dawn of man to the modern era. Wonderful gift shop, friendly staff. Only problem...More

This has to be one of the most enthralling museums /galleries that I have been to for ages. Inside a super-modern building you are taken on an art-walk of epic scale, starting with 2000 year-old artworks to the 19th century. Yes, there is a French...More

Spending some time in the area, we couldn't leave without visiting the Louvre-Lens. Worthwhile with a beautifully curated exhibition and wide open spaces.

Lovely museum which has permanent and temporary exhibitions. I paid 5 euros (ticket for student) to visit both exhibitions. However, it was not very easy to find the museum because signs were not very accurate. Besides, the road is not very attractive when you pass...More

We arrived just after opening having followed the walking route from town. A nice pleasant walk. The exhibition space is well laid out and different to the norm. Great exhibits were on display at the time. A must visit.

Our BnB host recommended this to us and we were not disappointed. A beautiful place that combines history and art. Some astonishing artifacts and world class pieces of art. Do not miss if you are nearby.

This is how to do it. A provincial town with a coal mining history now hosts an extremely effective outpost of the biggest museum in the world. You approach the building by way of a long path and are faced with a silver building which...More

It's still free, until the end of 2017 at least. Delightful; there's just enough on display to let you look closely at every exhibit. Arranged in a timeline from ancient Rome, Egypt, Greece etc to about 100 years ago.

If you drive down Rue Paul Bert westwards past the Musee there is a parking area on the left hand side of the road. There is a huge parking area around the Stade Bollaert-Delelis but this entails a longer walk. There are... More
