The inside story
The Louvre Abu Dhabi opened in November 2017 to tell the stories of the world through its permanent and temporary displays. With around 8,000 square meters of exhibition space, this 'museum-city' houses works of art and artefacts from the prehistoric to the contemporary age across cultures and continents.
Located in the Cultural District of Abu Dhabi on Saadiyat Island, the museum’s design has been inspired by its surrounding landscapes and combines concrete, water and light in the most magical way. An architectural marvel in itself, the museum was designed as a ‘floating dome of light and shade’ by the celebrated architect Jean Nouvel. The museum's 55 buildings are linked by the incredible dome formed of 7,850 steel-stars and as the sun passes above, its light filters through creating an enchanting and captivating effect.
