A Visit to the United Arab Emirates - Louvre Abu Dhabi

If you’re ever in Abu Dhabi, I encourage you to visit the Louvre Abu Dhabi - a most beautiful and interesting art and civilization museum.

The Louvre Abu Dhabi was inaugurated last month as part of a 30-year agreement between the city of Abu Dhabi and the French government. The new museum is an architectural masterpiece by designer, Jean Nouvel, and includes a growing collection of ancient archaeological finds, paintings, and both historical and contemporary installations. Hundreds of pieces represent ancient Egypt, the Roman Empire, ancient Chinese dynasties, the Renaissance, the Impressionists and the Modernists. My grandchildren, Jude and Truman, loved the Louvre Abu Dhabi, and were interested to see every piece of work. In fact, we saw many, many visitors enjoying their visit to this marvelous museum. 

We had a wonderful stay in the United Arab Emirates - it's truly a vacation destination for adults and children alike. There is so much history, culture and modern development in the UAE - if you haven't been there, I hope these last three blogs inspire you to add it to your list of places to visit. Enjoy these photos.
