About Louvre Abu Dhabi

The Louvre Abu Dhabi is a brand-new cultural icon that unites various civilizations to shed new light on common human tales. Louvre Abu Dhabi was first established in March 2007. The Louvre Abu Dhabi was built on Saadiyat Island as part of an unusual partnership between the UAE and France for cultural exchange. The collaboration would bring together France's expertise in the field of art and museums with the UAE's strong goal of cultural advancement and openness. It would investigate the universal themes that characterize and unite humanity.

If you only have a day to visit something amazing in Abu Dhabi, add Louvre to your list. You won't regret it I promise. The architecture is amazing inside and outside. Everything inside is just well-curated. Even if I'm not able to visit the Louvre in Paris, visiting the Louvre in Abu Dhabi is already enough for me. There's a pretty cafe outside too. I could spend a whole day here and not be mad about it. There's just so many things to see. If you're a curious person, this is definitely one for the books.nnI'll definitely come back here. 1-2 hours is just not enough. I'll try the kayak around the museum next time. You should too!

An amazing structure outside and inside. It was a pleasure walking around. There is a good collection of ancient objects and modern art, telling the history of human culture. There are guided tours options but it is okay to walk by yourself too. They have an app that is quite useful. It is better to book tickets in advance. The gift shop is quite nice too with lots of options for gifts, including for kids. Wheelchair accessible entrances and restrooms.

Simply WOW!nThe architecture and the whole atmosphere are breathtaking and out of this world.nThe museum itself is organized from the first ages of men until the present which is highly interesting. There’s a lot to learn and all different kind of art available.nnTip: Take your headphones! With the Louvre App you have your own portable audio guide and can choose the art pieces that you want some further information on.

What a beautiful museum! The architecture alone is worth the visit. We loved the Children's Museum and seeing the regular collection. It's not as big as in other museums maybe, but it tells the story of the history of mankind quite well. Alao interesting to see a focus on the African part of that story. Definitely worth your visit.

If you are interested in history, culture, art and geography, this is one of the best places to visit. Be mindful and ready of the fact that, the entire exploration might take you 4 hours only by foot to complete. The good thing though is, there are comfortable chairs to rest or lay down a bit if you want to. It is indeed a nice place to be.

Ok.. what to say? By what to start?nnEverything about this museum what amazing!n- First the building is incredible, either inside than outside. It's well designed to let you walk through the museum and enjoy the visit. The exterior part too is obviously incredible, and the dome is wonderful. It let the light go through, without the heat so you can enjoy your time outside.n- Exhibitions are also incredibly well thought and you follow in parallel the evolution of the civilizations and can see how, even when evolving in different places, they all come to a lot of similarities. The audio-guide is well made and explanations are kept short for each display, which is nice, around 1m30-2m max. In order to listen to everything, it will take you around 4h.n- Finally, the staff is really friendly in all part of the museum.nnTips: arrive early to enjoy the museum with less people and book a kayak tour around the museum, it's so much worth it and make you see the museum differently!

I love this incredible place! It’s beautiful and modern and keeps many gorgeous ancient artworks in it.nAn interesting permanent exhibition, supplemented regularly by new expositions. Everything is shown with great taste, convenient, compact and detailed. I love the architecture of this museum, its embeddedness in the landscape, its modernity and elegant beauty.nOn Wednesdays, you can visit the dome of this beautiful building for free starting at 18:30 hours, just at sunset, when the white walls of the museum are reflected in the different-colored reflections of the setting sun.nMust see when visiting Abu Dhabi.

I came here on a school trip. Even though it's pricey, it offers a good experience for those who haven't been to a museum before. Personally, I think the Louvre Abu Dhabi is very much like the one in France. I've been to museums in Europe and they are compact and crowded. This one is spaced out, offers activities for children and even has restaurants at the exit.nnThe entrance looked stunning. It was like walking through frames. The view was scenic with a lush blue waterfront. I'd suggest you come here either in early morning or at evening because it gets very hot in the afternoon. I went to one of my the restaurants inside, not sure which one, but they had really expensive food in small quantities. It did taste good, though. Apart from the price, I think this is a great place to visit as a family for some knowledge of history and for fun.

Louvre Abu Dhabi is one of the most beautiful museums in the world. It's an architectural piece of art built on one of Abu Dhabi Islands one hour and a half drive from Dubai. Of course this is not the Louvre Paris, it's an experience of its own, like any other beautiful museum in the world. You will find a great art collections, you also find a lot of amazing local historical artifacts and a wide range from around the world cultural artistic masterpieces. You can also enjoy fine dining at the museum restaurant with an amazing view of the gulf.

What a great space. I enjoyed the Louvre Abu Dhabi. The building itself and the design was very impressive. Very clean lines to the building. Once you get inside it's not overcrowded with art but it's nicely spaced out and a lot of rooms so make sure you find yourself self getting to all of the available rooms to see the artwork and there is more coming.

This place and it's exhibits are at very high standards. A must see for history lovers. Children museum section was special. Kids lesser than 10 would enjoy the activities there. Parking is super easy, but little far. However, buggies help you to shuttle between parking and museum entrance.

The experience really takes you by storm! Beautiful is an understatement for the absolutely stunning architecture of the museum. There is a person to guide you through at every 10 metres. The exhibits are well displayed throughout the area. The best time to visit would be sunset, to get a breathtaking view of the Abu Dhabi skyline from Saadiyat, as well as the beautiful dome. You can also try the kayaking they offer!

Amazing adventure...covers a lot of eras. Highly educational and fun at the same time. They also offer membership programs which guarantee good discounts. Although I'm not an art fan, this place still amazes me with the sheer number of artifacts and paintings of cultural as well as historical importance. A couple of coffee shops here(one inside and the other outside). These guys have special events scheduled throughout the year.

I will probably only visit Abu Dhabi once in my life but I was so lucky to visit the Louvre museum while I was there. I was even privileged to see Rodin's The Thinker on its year-long visit. What wonderful timing. The museum is amazing, a real homage to the Paris version and Abu Dhabi are honoured to have somewhere like this. I was actually staying in Dubai but the trip to Abu Dhabi to see the Louvre was well well worth it. Highly recommended.

Good morning,nwe went there early in morning to enjoy sunrise and breeze at waterside.nIt wasn't a trip to museum itself but surely this was amazing experience to be there.nVery nice weather, sightseeing, the kayaking, building of museum looks so beautiful with bright light coming out of the roof. The echo sound coming from the roof itself gives you thumbs-up ud83dudc4d experience.nWould like to go little early for some jogging around it and on the other side of building to enjoy sun rise over the top of the museum roof.
