Louvre Abu Dhabi

Louvre Abu Dhabi

Louvre Abu Dhabi is a universal museum on a mission to create human connections through art, dating from prehistory to the present.


Museum galleries

Louvre Abu Dhabi’s museum galleries tell the story of humanity in twelve inspiring chapters. Each chapter focuses on shared themes and ideas that reveal common connections throughout humanity. The works on show range from prehistoric artefacts to contemporary artworks. The art on show comes from the museum’s collection alongside many masterpieces on loan from some of the most world-renowned French museums. Louvre Abu Dhabi invites visitors to see humanity in a new light.


Louvre Abu Dhabi hosts four temporary exhibitions per year. As part of the unique collaboration between Abu Dhabi and France, they will be organised and created by thirteen French museum partners, exclusively for visitors to Louvre Abu Dhabi. These temporary exhibitions will follow the same thematic approach as the permanent collections in the Museum Galleries, highlighting comparisons, influences and ideas shared ideas across civilisations and cultures.

Children's museum

The experience of learning is at the heart of the Children's Museum. Centrally located across two floors, this specially designated section of Louvre Abu Dhabi hosts family-focused exhibitions and interactive workshops in Arabic and English. The aim is to inspire young minds by teaching children about artistic techniques and ideas.

The Children Museum has been conceived for children aged between six and twelve years old. It is ideal for both school groups or family visits. Children and adults alike are invited to share in numerous learning activities designed to nurture curiosity and creativity. The Children’s Museum also serves as a bridge to the rest of Louvre Abu Dhabi and its programmes, helping young visitors to get the most out of the museum’s focus on universal human themes.
