The Louvre Abu Dhabi celebrated its first anniversary
Ranked among the 100 most visited museums in the world, the Louvre Abu Dhabi celebrated its 1st birthday, November 11, with a nice gift: a million entries exceeded.
Inaugurated with great fanfare in November 2017 by French President Emmanuel Macron and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyane, the Louvre Abu Dhabi has become the favourite meeting place for family or friends residing in the United Arab Emirates and representing 40% of visitors.
For this anniversary, the museum presented dance performances, concerts and a special exhibition devoted to the history of commerce in the region. Thanks to the partnership with the French Louvre and other regional partners, the museum has become an iconic place celebrating intercultural connections that go beyond geography or civilizations, to perceive humanity from another angle.
