Louvre Abu Dhabi champions the cultural achievements of mankind from prehistory to present day. Built in collaboration with the world's most famous French museum, it houses priceless pieces of art, ancient artefacts, and regular exhibitions loaned from Paris. And as an architectural marvel in itself, it's a must-see in the United Arab Emirates.
This ambitious and innovative project will take you on a journey through four ages of human ingenuity. From the origin of the species to globalisation, a collection of prehistoric pieces and contemporary artworks tell the story of civilisation's cultural evolution.
Once you've admired the wonders within this masterpiece of French design and Arabic heritage, there's a visit to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – one of the largest mosques in the world. Named in honour of the UAE's first president and founder, you'll step inside its fine white-marble interior and see a space that can hold over 40,000 worshippers – an awe-inspiring sight.
