More than 3.2 million visitors have visited Louvre Abu Dhabi since it opened its doors on November 11, 2017, five years ago.
Louvre Abu Dhabi, designed by Jean Nouvel, opened on Saadiyat Island following an agreement between the governments of Abu Dhabi and France. A popular destination for locals and tourists alike, it has quickly become a world-renowned cultural institution in its five years of operation.
The museum will host a series of events, exhibitions, and performances to mark its fifth anniversary with the theme “The Grand Story Continues.”
The galleries were updated with several new acquisitions and international loans to celebrate the occasion.
A highlight is the first of four major loans from the Musée du Louvre, Leonardo da Vinci’s Saint John the Baptist.
Contemporary works are represented, with 12 mirrors from Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto’s series ‘Mirror Paintings’ that will be on display until February 2023.
Over the years, the cultural landmark has partnered with more than 30 regional, French and international museums and institutions. BKM/ Expat Media
