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!
  • Spectacular museum with elegant look and feel, unique layout, and amazing collection. The museum runs you through the history of civilization using art to tell the story, drawing parallels between civilizations never thought to be alike. The design of the building and overall layout is great. The location of the museum is also rather beautiful. When visiting mid day on a Tuesday, no lines or crowds were experienced. The museum cafe was also a nice place to enjoy a coffee when finished with the gallery. Cafe was fairly priced, as expected at a museum.
  • Love this place! They have a good array of antiques and historical display. I brought my guests here two weeks ago and they loved it !
  • Indeed the architecture of this building and the surrounding area is top notch.. I'm not a huge fan of museum so didn't go inside the place but get yourself a coffee or drink and walk around the entire place to just relax and enjoy the ocean waves crashing onto shore, but I'm sure the interior of this place would be just as amazing as the outside.
