Suggested merge[edit]

There can't be any gain in comprehension or context by separating the Palace from Luxembourg Garden. Would anyone object to the merge? --Wetman 06:05, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

I object and have removed the notice - see the garden's talk page. CalJW 20:16, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

wrong information[edit]

I'm not sure how to edit the page correctly, so I would rather leave it to someone who can. This article says that the palace was not used from 1694 untill 1778, this is not true. Between 1750 and 1778 it was open to of the week to the public as an art museum, it contained many paintings and fine objects. This information can be cited in the article 'The musée du Louvre as Revolutionary Metaphor during the Terror' by Andrew L. McClellan. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.22.45.244 (talk) 14:59, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

I went ahead and added this information, with the source. --Stomme (talk) 07:56, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Image[edit]

Hi. I have recently uploaded another image of the palace to Commons, which has just been promoted to FP.

Palais du Luxembourg, South View 140116 1.jpg

I am wondering if it might be preferable for this article, since it treats the palace itself, with more even lighting, and not the garden. While the current photo is certainly very nice, I do not think that it is ideal for readers to gain a good overview of the building, as it shows the palace from a slight angle and with several other subjects in the foreground. Are there any opinions concerning the subject here? --DXR (talk) 13:28, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
