AFL is dedicated to advancing the Louvre’s mission through an active grant-making program. It raises awareness of the Louvre’s collections and museum expertise, and helps make the Museum’s exhibitions and permanent collections more accessible in the U.S. and around the world.
Located at the heart of the Louvre and Tuileries National Estate, the Grande Allée was designed by André Le Nôtre as one of the greatest legacies of the Tuileries Garden.
Today, the Musée du Louvre is undertaking an ambitious renovation project of the Grande Allée, with the planting of two rows of disease resistant elm trees. The goal is to re-establish the layout of the17th-century garden, thereby spotlighting the grand historical axis of Paris. By providing more cool shade and greenery, the project will offer increased comfort to visitors and boost biodiversity.
