Designed by architect Jean Nouvel, Louvre Abu Dhabi includes a series of white buildings and a striking, 180 m (590 ft) wide dome paying homage to the desert palms and traditional roofing. The many galleries within the complex contain a collection of sculptures, paintings, and other objects arranged around common themes and influences. The works displayed there were selected from Louver's own collections and other French museums.

  • This was the main reason we chose to stay in Abu Dhabi so we could visit here. Easy and quick to buy your ticket on entry. Look after it as It is scanned on a few occasions at various exhibition entry...  more »
  • The discovery of this new Louvre museum in Abu Dhabi is breathtaking, by the scale of the place, much larger than the imagination you could have from the photos, by the beauty of the place with this turquoise sea that enters the building, by the originality of the presentation of the works of art very sober and uncluttered. This is a must-see in Abu Dhabi. Again "hat the artist "

  • What a wonderful experience! The exhibition is excellent. Unlike in European museums, here the approach is to order the exhibits by time period only and not by location or cultural group. You therefore find African carvings next to Asian sculptures or European ones and get to compare and appreciate the similarities and common themes across civilizations, rather then only seeing them on their own terms. The building is quite astonishing as well. A very worth while experience!
  • Rembrandt and Jan Vermeer- and other great Masters- if you want to spend a positive and inspirational day- visit The Louvre Abu Dhabi. I loved that i can listen to the relevant information on my own phone via the Louvre app. Go and enjoy!
