The television company Arte has uploaded a documentary it made in 2017 detailing the plans the Louvre has been making in case the Seine burst its banks. This nearly happened after a particularly bad flood in 2016. A renewed look at their disaster plan ended with the construction of a new storage facility in Liévin which was begun in 2015 and completed in 2019.

The documentary, which is only available in French and German, will be available to watch via. the link above until 14th October 2020.
