To coincide with the Babylon exhibition, the Louvre's educational and cultural division is providing educational trails offering material relating to Babylon. Based on the French national curriculum, they can be accessed from the French version of the exhibition's mini-site, on the museum's main Web site at www.louvre.fr.


Based on analysis and comparison of works of art, on maps, and on texts, the educational trails give an account of the city's contribution to the fundamentals of Western culture and of the lasting character of the visual representations that emerged. This information can also be found in the review Textes et Documents pour la classe, published by the educational resources body SCEREN (Services Culture Editions Ressources pour l’Education Nationale) which, in partnership with the Louvre, is devoting a special issue to "Babylon".
