Louvre Abu Dhabi to open on
11 November 2017

Saadiyat Island
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Louvre Abu Dhabi will open its doors to the public on 11 November 2017. It is the first museum of its kind in the Arab world: a universal museum focusing on shared human stories across civilizations and cultures.

Located in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Pritzker Prize-winning French architect Jean Nouvel has designed a museum city (Arab medina) under a vast silvery dome comprised of almost 8,000 unique metal stars.

On display will be the museum’s important collection of artworks, artifacts and loans from France’s top museums, ranging from prehistorical objects to commissioned contemporary artworks. Marking a departure from traditional museography that often separates according to origin, the collection will highlight universal themes from the entire history of human existence.
