Louvre Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi

4.5
#1 of 12 in Museums in Abu Dhabi
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. Look for these highlights: an ancient gold bracelet from the Middle East, Paul Gauguin's "Children Wrestling," a 1920s Picasso collage, along with many other masterpieces.

  • 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!
