Travel back in time to seventeenth and eighteenth-century France and discover the art, ideas, people and politics behind the creation of the great Musée du Louvre in Louvre Abu Dhabi’s first exhibition.
Louvre Abu Dhabi hosts four temporary exhibitions per year. As part of the unique collaboration between Abu Dhabi and France, they will be organised and created by thirteen French museum partners, exclusively for visitors to Louvre Abu Dhabi.
These temporary exhibitions will follow the same thematic approach as the permanent collections in the Museum Galleries, highlighting comparisons, influences and ideas shared ideas across civilisations and cultures.
