Louvre Abu Dhabi, which will open its doors to the public on Saturday November 11, is the first gallery of its kind in the Middle East. Art in its permanent collection will come from around the world, spanning from the beginning of history to the modern day, all of which will be grouped by time rather than country or movement. Of the 600 pieces on display, half will be on loan from 13 of France’s top cultural institutions. General admission will cost Dhs60 for adults and Dhs30 for those aged between 13 and 22, and UAE education professionals.

The hugely ambitious project is the product of a collaboration between the governments of France and the United Arab Emirates, and is part of a cultural strategy to drive creativity and tourism in the region. “Louvre Abu Dhabi embodies our belief that nations thrive on diversity and acceptance, with a curatorial narrative that emphasises how interconnected the world has always been,” says His Excellency Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman of Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority and Tourism Development & Investment Company. “The museum represents the latest innovation in a long-standing tradition of cultural preservation nurtured by the founding leaders of the UAE.”
