Louvre Abu Dhabi

After almost a decade-long delay, the most awaited Louvre Abu Dhabi Universal Museum is now in its completion stage and all set to add a pivot point to the status of not only Abu Dhabi but the UAE itself, placing it among the world’s most popular cultural nations.

The first of its kind universal museum in the Arabian Peninsula, it is a collaborative effort between the governments of Abu Dhabi and France, and obviously its legendary name says it all. But contrary to its name, it’s not all about replicating the model or content of Louvre Museum, but rather establishing a rational route of discovery, openness and oneness. This unique and enlightening approach creates a perfect platform for the education and exchange of ideas as well as cultures, allowing visitors to explore diverse civilizations and world history through its extensive exhibits; compare and learn them in-depth; and most importantly, contemplate on their genuine values.

Showcasing a vast spectrum of objects that depict both ancient and the latest in the contemporary artistic expressions, the $650 million museum features permanent installations that span for more than 65,000 square feet and mainly backed by loans from such legendary museums as Musée du Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, and Centre Pompidou. With its exhibits presented chronologically, it will take you through four distinct periods, from archeology and the birth of Islam to the classical age and modern era. Apart from a dedicated section for kids, there is approximately 20000 square feet of space for temporary exhibitions as well.

Most of all, Louvre Abu Dhabi Universal Museum is truly an impressive spectacle on water. Encompassing a series of stunning white structures that reflect an Arabian city, it forms a significant element of the thriving Saadiyat Cultural District which will also host museums including the Zayed National Museum and the Guggenheim Museum. The award-winning French architect, Jean Nouvel, has drawn inspiration for its awe-inspiring design from the region’s ancient construction techniques, such as the traditional Falaj water system and interweaved palm leaves, which were once used for roofing purpose.

Apparently, the core specialty of this mesmerizing building is undoubtedly its intricate and multi-layered geometric lace dome, enhanced by thousands of star-like cladding patterns. The resulting structure provides elegant perforations, creating a stunning contrast of sunlight and shade. Needless to say, the one of its kind museum is striking in every way - unique concept, wide-ranging offerings, and aesthetic appearance!

very clean surroundings

My parents are big time art and culture enthusiasts, so it was a no-brainer for me that they would love to see the Louvre Abu Dhabi Universal Museum. Got Rayna Tours to arrange everything and they loved every bit of it. Next time, I will be doing this tour.

Stunning Structure

8. I have seen the Louvre in Paris and the Louvre Abu Dhabi Universal Museum and the Abu Dhabi one is better, simply because of the stunning architecture. Have never seen such a beautiful rain and light effect. It’s one of Rayna’s best tours and I highly recommend it to all.

Thank you, Rayna Tours for the Louvre Abu Dhabi Universal Museum tickets. My whole tour group has a great time here, and I must say, the building itself looks like an art installation. It is quite remarkable.
