Take Your TimeYou can probably breeze through the galleries of the Louvre Abu Dhabi in about two hours, but you’ll miss the chance to enjoy some real treasures. The architecture of the building means that there are always extra corners and crevices, so make sure you’ve properly explored each room before moving to the next.

Improve Your SketchingEvery Saturday the museum hosts sketching sessions for visitors aged 16 and over, with materials provided. Places are limited to 15 per session, so book ahead to make sure you get a ticket.
Enjoy the MusicThe museum hosts Ayyala performances between 3 pm and 5 pm each weekend outside of Ramadan. The traditional Bedouin music is performed by 20 to 30 musicians and is not to be missed.
Take to the SeaIf you find that regular architecture tours are lacking in action, why not take a tour of the museum by kayak? This hour-long experience invites you to kayak on the Arabian Sea around the beautiful museum while a guide informs you about the innovative architecture. Tours are also available after dark on selected dates during the full moon.

The Louvre Abu Dhabi: Fine Art in the Desert

The Louvre Abu Dhabi was designed to bridge the gap between eastern and western art, opening in November 2017. Its galleries are laid out in chronological order so you can see what schools of art from around the world were contemporaries, something that might add a little depth to your understanding of the art world. You’ll start with art from the earliest stages of the human species, moving on to the great Empires and larger civilizations, through the dawn of world religions and global trade routes to the present day and modern art forms.
