Rue de Rivoli, Paris, France view map

The building in the foreground is the Museum of Decorative Arts (Musée des Arts Décoratifs) on rue de Rivoli. It's contained in the western wing of the Louvre palace.

On the other side of the park behind we can see the Louvre School, a high school in which students can study archaeology, art history, anthropology, epigraphy… "You what?", I hear you ask. Things like the Rosetta stone which allowed Egyptian hieroglyphs to be translated.

It would probably be a more memorable high school experience than the legions who make their way through years of scorching asphalt grounds in the peripheries of major cities, with demountable classrooms that were put in as "temporary" accommodation 20 years earlier. Whether very many high school students would be able to appreciate exactly HOW different a school which is part of one of the greatest museums in the world is… that's a different question.
