On November 11, 2017, after much delay, the Louvre in Abu Dhabi opened.
The museum relates to the Louvre in Paris and is located in the cultural district of Abu Dhabi on Saadiyat Island.
During the construction of this museum, many new techniques were used, which you can certainly see. Also, in the field of ventilation because it can be very hot in Dubai. It is of course not intended that the artworks suffer from this.
The collections in the museum come from the Louvre in Paris or other museums in France. The other half on display in the museum has been bought by the museum itself in recent years. Together, the goal is to express the new Louvre museum as a “universal, encyclopedic museum for all humanity”.
