Louvre Abu Dhabi is a
universal museum on Saadiyat Island
that exhibits art and artefacts from ancient times to the present day. Designed
by French architect Jean Nouvel, the museum contains 12 chapters in the
galleries, special exhibition spaces, a Children’s Museum, auditorium,
restaurants, retail and a research centre. Surrounded by the sea, the buildings
are connected by waterfront promenades beneath the museum’s stunning dome.

originating from throughout human history and around the world, brought
together to highlight universal themes and influences. To date, Louvre Abu
Dhabi has acquired more than 600 artworks, exhibited alongside 300 works on
loan from 13 leading French institutions.

their events and exhibitions.
