Kobe City Museum: Louvre Exhibit

Kobe Museum神戸市立博物館のルーブル美術館展

The Kobe City Museum currently is exhibiting items from the Louvre until July 6th.

140 items from the French court of the 18th century are on display.

They include gold and silver works, elaborate furniture, and luggage.

This period was known for its excesses, and the items reflect that.

The Kobe City Museum also has a solid collection of artifacts and other historical items related mainly to the port city of Kobe.
