Our visit left us torn in between the amazing architecture and art and an irritating security administration throughout the exhibit: security guards ‘jumping’ at visitors whenever they get too close to art. Instead of relaxing and enjoying the exhibit, you feel monitored and observed. This...More

Even though the collection is not very big it’s well curated the museum itself is a true architectural jewel. Definitely a must do in Abu Dhabi!

One very beautiful piece of modern art. It will take you around 2 hours to get through all the exhibits - it has something for everyone - even a children’s museum, which I had not the pleasure to visit. I believe it is a must...More

The gallery is a little isolated at present but if you enjoy looking around art galleries, then this one is for you. Exhibits are well presented and the building is impressive. The famous painting of Christ (Salvator Mundi) recently purchased does not go on display...More

The Louvre Abu Dhabi totally exceeded my expectations! It was simple and elegant. The displays were quality over quantity. I loved the cross cultural connections made in the exhibit. We ate in the restaurant. The meal was delicious! Gift shop items were too expensive.

Like everyone else, we were excited about the Louver in Abu Dhabi. It was overall an experience mix of appreciation and disappointment. The architecture is wonderful and shows the marvelous engineering achievement, but it contradicts with the content inside. I couldn’t get my head around...More

Very much worth a visit. Go earlier in the day to avoid the larger tourist groups. Some real gems and I imagine worth repeat visits as the exhibits change.

There was no long queue when I went. There are no stairs inside the building - there are some outside - but you don’t have to use them. Not sure if Fridays are crowded. I went after 2pm and it was perfect - no lines...

Just be modestly dressed as it attracts families. Also be mindful of the hot weather. It’s a lot of walking so will suggest comfortable shoes. Enjoy.
