Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum
See Humanity in a new light
Louvre Abu Dhabi is a new cultural beacon, bringing different cultures together to shine fresh light on the shared stories of humanity
A Pioneering Cultural Project - The First of its Kind:
The origins of Louvre Abu Dhabi dated back to 2007, when France and the United Arab Emirates came together to develop a new kind of cultural institution. The result is a museum rooted in universal human values, the first of its kind in the region. Louvre Abu Dhabi represents the dynamic nature of the contemporary Arab world, while celebrating the region's vibrant multicultural heritage.
With support and contributions from Agence France-Museums - gathering seventeen of France's most renowned cultural institutions - Louvre Abu Dhabi represents a unique opportunity to combine the UAE's bold vision of cultural progression and openness with France's expertise in the world of art and museum.
Louvre Abu Dhabi hosts four temporary exhibitions per year. As part of the unique collaboration between Abu Dhabi and France, they will be organised and created by thirteen French museum partners, exclusively for visitors to Louvre Abu Dhabi.
These temporary exhibitions will follow the same thematic approach as the permanent collections in the Museum Galleries, highlighting comparisons, influences and shared ideas across civilisations and cultures.
