design and location
price a little bit high
A great place to visit to diversify your stay in Abu Dhabi. This is not the Paris Louvre at all, it is a modern museum for quick and superficial acquaintance with everything in the world: masks, paintings, statues, ceramics, etc. A very interesting museum building and the organization of the space around. The children were delighted with the "Children's Louvre". On the spot, they take a photo of their faces and give a bracelet with a barcode, and further interactive actions take place with a personalized character. In general, this place is interesting to see, to see a different type of museums than we are used to.

Description:

Art museum in Abu Dhabi

The iconic Louvre Abu Dhabi is the first universal museum in the Arab World that translates the spirit of openness of cultures. As one of the premier cultural institutions located in the heart of the Saadiyat Cultural District, the art-lovers dream displays the works of historical, cultural and sociological significance from ancient times to the contemporary era. Designed by Pritzker-prize winning architect Jean Nouvel, the Louvre Abu Dhabi encompasses 9,200 sq. m of galleries including the Permanent Gallery and a Temporary Gallery that is enriched by loans from many notable French museums including Musee du Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, and Centre Pompidou.

Recreating parts of UAE’s integral cultural elements, Nouvel designed a falaj-inspired water system running through the museum, inspired by ancient Arabian engineering whilst the orderly lace dome borrows inspiration from the interlaced palm leaves traditionally used as roofing material in many parts of the country that results in an enchanting play of light. The juxtaposition of different civilizations in the same spaces, the Louvre Abu Dhabi illustrates similarities and exchanges from the shared human experience going beyond geography, nationality, and history.
