Louvre Abu Dhabi

A new cultural beacon, bringing different cultures together to shine fresh light on the shared stories of humanity

A Pioneering Cultural Project

The origins of Louvre Abu Dhabi date back to March 2007. The UAE and France formed an unprecedented partnership for cultural exchange, and the highlight of this would be the establishment of Louvre Abu Dhabi on Saadiyat Island. It represents the dynamic nature of the contemporary Arab world while celebrating the region’s vibrant multicultural heritage.

  • Innovative Exhibitions

    Louvre Abu Dhabi presents four major special exhibitions each year which are created in collaboration with our respected French museum partners and feature works loaned from their permanent collections. Inspired by Louvre Abu Dhabi’s universal approach to the history of humanity, these temporary exhibitions are curated in seasons and organised according to themes that are common to cultures and civilisations the world over. While comparing and highlighting shared influences and ideas, they also represent opportunities to explore in detail specific themes that are touched upon in Louvre Abu Dhabi’s main galleries.
  • Museum Boutique

    Our museum boutique contains gifts for art lovers of all ages, from limited edition artists’ prints and homewares to exquisite jewellery and one of the finest range of art books in the UAE.
  • World - Class Collections

    Spanning the course of human history, our permanent collections not only recount the history of art but of ideas and innovation, encounter and exchange. Whatever your age or wherever you’re from, you’ll also be able to see your own story reflected in our museum galleries, which narrate a new and truly global history of humankind.
