    A must visit if you're in Abu Dhabi
    This is a massive property with stunning architectural designs throughout. The historic pieces did impress and we enjoyed exploring and learning. Exhibits are well positioned for optimal viewing. It was busy when we attended but didn't feel that way when we toured because of the expansive layout. I do recommend.
    Hello Alan, thank you for your detailed review! We are glad that you enjoyed your visit to our museum and we hope to see you again! Have a nice day.

    Worth the price of admission!
    We visited the Louvre Abu Dhabi during a long layover. To explore the exhibits thoroughly, you probably need 2-3 hours. We got there near closing time, so we had to make do with under an hour. It was still worth it! The architecture of the complex is novel and beautiful, and each gallery has at least a couple of very notable pieces. I love the way the museum puts similar pieces from around the world side by side. Note: we found taxi prices to be much cheaper than Uber, and there’s a taxi stand at the Louvre where it was easy yo get a ride to the airport even after the museum closed.

    The Louvre Abu Dhabi
    The architecture and design of this Louvre is simple, elegant and beautiful. All the pieces inside are worth a view and read; educational and thought provoking. Outside, enjoy the amazing view of the water and admire the detail of this building. Must do!

    An incredible building with huge potential to rival, in due time, old established museums. Very interesting exhibits formulated in an evolution process. Spacious and easy to follow with good descriptions of exhibits.

    Top 10 things to do in Abu Dhabi
    If you’re in Abu Dhabi, you MUST visit Louvre. It is inspired from Louvre Museum in Paris and consists of some of the rarest paintings and art pieces of all time. I found the antique jewellery collection to be BREATHTAKING! There are separate rooms based on different themes. Extremely picturesque.

    Such a wow
    First of all, it has a unique architecture, the combination with water and attractive roof design is really unique. The objects inside the museum are attractive, although there was no necessary coherence and order in the arrangement between civilizations, from Egypt to Iran, Greece and... For us with a 7-year-old son, the existence of the children's museum was very interesting and helped us to spend more time in the museum. And finally, we used the special shuttle from Dubai to go and back to the museum, it was convenient and free, although it may take a relatively long time, but it was worth it.

    Must do
    Absolutely amazing museum. The flow of the building and exhibition is exemplary. Loved the building. The kids space exhibition is very interactive. Liked the turtle sanctuary on the roof. My only criticism would be they ask you to place bags in cloak room but don’t adhere to the policy. The way the art and history interact and are displayed is very dynamic

    Louvre visit
    A nice blend of art and antiquities. If you ever find yourself in Abu Dhabi it is 100% worth a visit. Plan for about 3 hours to see and read everything that the Louvre has to offer. Very affordable as well.

Kudos to the architects of this museum, who incorporated both indoor and outdoor (heavily shaded) space and both land and sea. I especially liked being able to kayak inside the Louvre!

The perfect size for a museum with a very well thought out exhibition. The building itself is very peaceful, if you can describe a building as being peaceful.

We were in Abu Dhabi for 2 days layover offer.
Louvre Abu Dhabi is a cultural masterpiece nestled on Saadiyat Island, offering a unique blend of art, history, and architectural splendor. With its iconic dome that seems to float above the waters, the museum is a stunning architectural marvel that captivates visitors from the moment they arrive. Inside, a diverse collection of artworks from around the world awaits, spanning centuries and civilizations. From ancient artifacts to modern masterpieces, each exhibit tells a story of humanity's rich cultural heritage.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here, being a resident of Dubai for some time now, I can say that Abu Dhabi tourism is growing really strongly. It is a modern museum with 12 areas displaying many historical artifacts and art from various civilizations. A must see in Abu Dhabi.

Positives:
- awesome building, come just for the interesting architecture alone
- wide range of artefacts and pieces, you could spend hours or do a quick tour round and still see lots
- areas of great serenity beyond the crowds, if you seek them out
- plenty of amenities - little cafe stalls, restaurants, terraces etc.

Negatives:
- other tourists very rude with their photography - I heard loud sighs, tuts, and even a "hello, move" for daring to stand in front of artwork in a museum when tourists wanted to have their photo taken in front of the piece. Can the security keep a better eye on this? Nothing wrong with a quick photo, but demanding that paying customers enjoying the art move out of the way for a photo of someone to be taken seems insane
- rudeness from other tourists to the staff who were just trying to do their job - made the experience unpleasant

Went to Louvre Abu Dhabi to see what’s in store. I was amazed of the pieces in Display. from historical artifacts/ paintings / sculptures. The architecture is amazing and reflective of a distinct Arabic architecture (cupola). must See for yourself. worth it.

Nestled on the tranquil Saadiyat Island, the Louvre Abu Dhabi is a masterpiece of architectural ingenuity, designed by the renowned Jean Nouvel. Its striking metal dome, a marvel in itself, casts an enchanting ‘rain of light’ across the interiors, reminiscent of sunlight filtering through date palm fronds in an oasis.

The museum’s collection is as impressive as its architecture. It offers a chronological and thematic journey spanning thousands of years and a multitude of cultures, from ancient Egyptian artefacts to renowned pieces from the French Renaissance. Each artwork and exhibit is thoughtfully displayed, creating dialogues across time and space that are both enlightening and provocative.

One of the highlights of my visit was the museum’s gallery dedicated to universal religions. It features a rare Quran, a Gothic Bible, and a Yemenite Torah, all in close proximity, symbolising a profound respect for diverse faiths and cultures. This thoughtful curation not only showcases the artistic beauty of these religious texts but also promotes a message of unity and peace.

The museum also offers engaging interactive zones and multimedia guides that enrich the visitor experience, making art accessible to all, regardless of one’s prior knowledge. Whether it’s a guided tour or a leisurely stroll through the galleries, every visit promises new insights and continual inspiration.

The Louvre Abu Dhabi is more than just a museum; it is a cultural beacon that enlightens and connects people from all walks of life. I left with a deeper appreciation for the world’s shared heritage and a renewed sense of wonder at the human spirit’s capacity to create and communicate across ages.

I highly recommend a visit to this magnificent institution; it is a journey that captivates the soul, challenges the mind, and uplifts the spirit.

Well where should I start to write a review about this museum. We had already seen the construction on TV and loved following it. A few years ago, my parents had also been there and we were impressed then too. So we decided to visit as soon as we were back in the United Arab Emirates.
What a wonderful collection. Quite an impressive time travel. Hopefully next time we are there, an even more beautiful collection. See you soon.

It`s much more than Louvre Paris in a nutshell. The building itself is remarkable and all the permanent galleries are very well structured on the chronology of eras and civilizations. We had the privilege to visit also the temporary exhibition presenting Cartier jewelry with the Islamic and Persian influence - one of the most interesting (and valuable) art exposition I`ve ever visited.
