Louvre Abu Dhabi

Louvre Abu Dhabi a beautiful and amazing inside the attraction in UAE

The Louvre Abu Dhabi is an art and civilization museum, located in Abu Dhabi. The iconic Louvre Abu Dhabi is the first universal museum in the Arab World that translates the spirit of openness of cultures. As one of the premier cultural institutions located in the heart of the Saadiyat Cultural District, the art-lovers dream displays the works of historical, cultural, and sociological significance from ancient times to the contemporary era. The museum is part of a thirty-year agreement between the city of Abu Dhabi and the French government. The museum is the largest art museum in the Arabian peninsula.

Louvre Museum had its origin in 2007 when both France and the UAE decided to build a cultural institution that would be a sign of the spirited nature of the traditional Arab world. The famous Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum is a perfect mix of the UAE culture and openness, the perfection as well as the expertise of France.
The museum has an exquisite collection of significant works, some notable examples include a standing Bactrian princess from approximately 2000 BCE, an 1878 painting titled ‘Young Emir Studying’ by Osman Hamdi Bey, and a 3,000-year-old Middle Eastern gold bracelet featuring a lion’s head.
Some other incredible works include- the oldest known photographic representation of a veiled woman, Paul Gauguin’s masterpiece Children Wrestling, a 1928 collage by Picasso titled Portrait of a Lady, the René Magritte painting titled ‘The Subjugated Reader’ and nine canvasses by contemporary artist Cy Twombly.
This museum is very different than other museums as it features some of the extraordinary collections of masterpieces, sculptures and paintings already mentioned.
These ancient and contemporary works hail from various countries. One of the awesome features of the museum is its silvery dome popularly known as the ‘Floating dome of light and shade.’ It creates an exceptional rain-of-light effect inside the museum by filtering the sunlight through its perforations. Another fascinating thing about the museum is that it is accessible by both lands as well as the sea.
During the visit, you can also check out the Museum Café which is a very classy and elegant outlet where you can get a scrumptious combination of Emirati dishes with a touch of European flavours complemented together to give you the perfect dining experience. Another café to check out here is Abu Dhabi’s first specialty coffee shop called the Aptitude Café is popular because it is the only café that brews the finest quality coffee beans hailing from Colombia, Brazil, Panama, and Ethiopia.

Artworks from around the world are showcased at the museum, focusing on bridging the gap between Eastern and Western art. Designed by Pritzker-prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel, the Louvre Abu Dhabi encompasses 9,200 sq. m of galleries. Recreating parts of UAE’s integral cultural elements, Nouvel designed a falaj-inspired water system running through the museum. Inspired by ancient Arabian engineering, the orderly lace dome borrows inspiration from the interlaced palm leaves traditionally used as roofing material in many parts of the country, resulting in an enchanting play of light.

The juxtaposition of different civilizations in the same spaces, the Louvre Abu Dhabi illustrates similarities and exchanges from the shared human experience beyond geography, nationality, and history.
