You can find almost everything about Louvre's permanent exhibits and events in the museum's site. Famous permanent exhibits that I'd personally wouldn't miss are:
- The Winged Victory of Samothrace,
- Nicolas Poussin's painting The Rape of the Sabine Women, and
- Eugène Delacroix's painting July 28: Liberty Leading the People.
You can find more about the Louvre's permanent exhibits on the site's Selected Works section.
In mesopotamian collections, don't miss the code of Hammurabi found in Susa (Shush, Iran), the first written law in the world.
