Depart your selected location—your Abu Dhabi hotel or Abu Dhabi port or airport—by air-conditioned vehicle bound for the Louvre Abu Dhabi on Saadiyat Island. The Arabian Peninsula’s biggest art institution, the museum is the result of a cultural partnership between the UAE, France’s Louvre, and 16 other French institutions.
On arrival, admire the geometric dome that ‘floats’ over a series of pools. Comprised of nearly 8,000 star-like perforations, it filters the interior sunlight to create a stunning dappled effect.
Then, show your ticket and enjoy time to explore independently. Wander the 12 galleries—each focused on different eras of human creativity—seeing everything from prehistoric and historical Arabian and Asian treasures to modern European paintings and more, including masterpieces from top French museums.
Afterward, explore the temporary exhibitions and choose to visit the café or rooftop lounge. Your experience then finishes with a drop-off at your departure point.
