Exhibition " Trésors " at the Louvre-Lens Museum

Only 35 minutes by car from our Morphée hotel, we invite you to discover an exhibition that makes you dream!


From 27 June 2018 to 01 October 2018

The Louvre-Lens makes you discover, through a magnificent exhibition, precious, rare and very fragile treasures. These pieces come from different periods and civilizations. These objects evoke human ingenuity from around the world. Take the opportunity to explore these treasures for free, exhibited exclusively since their entry into the national collections!


The Time Gallery

The gallery of time, an open space of 3000 m², presents more than 200 masterpieces ranging from the 4th millennium BC to the middle of the 19th century. This unique journey through the history of art and humanity is a crossroads of eras, techniques and civilizations.


The Glass Pavilion

The Pavillon de verre seeks to enhance the richness of the museum heritage of the Hauts-de-France region. It is also a space that opens to contemporary art as well as to museographic experiments.


Among the treasures: The shroud of a mummy and the celestial globe of Iran!

Made to wrap a body; the shroud reveals "the visions of the afterlife. The one currently on display shows magical formulas designed to repel snakes as well as excerpts from the Book of the Two Paths, a true geographical guide for the use of the deceased. The celestial globe of Iran, from 1700, presents constellations discovered by the Dutch in 1612. Its decoration also reveals elements from European globes of the same period, attesting to exchanges between India and Europe, a period rich in trade.
