Museum now open

As the first exclusive Platinum Partner to Louvre Abu Dhabi, we are excited to celebrate the opening of this magnificent museum. 

The universal story of the museum embodies the spirit of openness and dialogue among cultures, displaying works of historical, cultural and sociological significance from different times and civilisations. Designed by Pritzker-prize winning architect, Jean Nouvel, the inspiration for the concept of Louvre Abu Dhabi was traditional Arabic architectural culture. Applying a contextual approach, the Louvre Abu Dhabi has been designed as a ‘museum city’ in the sea, with its contrasting series of 55 buildings, including 23 galleries. The museum is inspired by the medina and low-lying Arab settlements. It consists of a temporary exhibition space, Children’s Museum, auditorium, restaurant, café and boutique. Surrounded by the sea, visitors can walk the promenades beneath the museum’s stunning dome and take in its beautiful architecture. It is one of only a few truly universal museums in the world, the first in the Arab world, and awe-inspiring in both its scale and design.

Fly with us to Abu Dhabi and see humanity in a new light.
