Louvre Abu Dhabi
A First Look into this Spectacular $1 Billion Art Museum

 

One of the most visited museums in the world, the Louvre Museum in Paris holds over 380,000 objects and pieces of art from prehistory to the 21st century and serves as the city's central landmark. We all recognize the Louvre by its iconic glass pyramid entrance designed by Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei. The Mona Lisa herfself even makes this French museum her home where she and her fellow art friends receive 7.3 million visitors per year.


 

Well, step aside Louvre Paris. There's a new kid in town... well, not exactly the same town. 5,000 kilometers southeast of Paris on the Arabian Peninsula lies Abu Dhabi, home of the brand new Louvre Abu Dhabi.

 

 
LOCATION Abu Dhabi, UAE Paris, France
INAUGURATION November 8, 2017 August 10, 1793
SIZE 260,000 sq ft 782,910 sq ft
CONSTRUCTION 600 million Euro Philip Augustus' fortress

 

 

 

What is this meaning of this unusual partnership? The city of Abu Dhabi and the French government have come together into a thirty-year agreement with aims to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western art. Abu Dhabi will be paying $525 million simply to be associated with the "Louvre" name and over $700 million for Louvre Abu Dhabi to take part in art loans and exchanges with its Parisian counterpart.

 

 

The structural wonder on the Saadiyat Island Cultural District is the creation of French architect Jean Nouvel spanning over 260,000 square feet in size including 86,000 square feet in galleries. It was designed as a "seemingly floating dome structure" with geometric patterns carefully crafted out of 7,850 aluminum stars and 8 roof layers so that natural light will spectacularly filter on to the museum floor.

 

 

 

 

 

Next time you make it to the Arabian Peninsula, you'll definitely want to add the Louvre Abu Dhabi to your list. Keep in mind that Abu Dhabi is only an hour drive from Dubai. So, add an extra kick to your next Dubai trip with an Abu Dhabi add-on. Not only can you see the Louvre Abu Dhabi, but some other fun attractions like Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Sheikh Zayed Mosque. And while your at it, let your hair down and take a wild sand dune ride through the desert - a definite "must" for any first-timer to the U.A.E.
