Make sure your next flight is to Abu Dhabi, where you can enjoy the magnificence of Louvre Abu Dhabi, and feel the sun on your skin whether inside or out. This masterpiece by award-winning architect, Jean Nouvel, will open its doors today, 11 November 2017.
Louvre Abu Dhabi is a new cultural beacon, bringing different cultures together to shine fresh light on the shared stories of humanity. It’s the first Louvre museum to open outside Paris.
The iconic museum on Saadiyat Island opened its doors at 10am to the public — though the 1,000 extra tickets released for the opening day were quickly snapped up online, said organisers.
