The museum is not a copy of the Louvre in Abu Dhabi, but an original institution, which formulates a proposal for a universal museum, a reflection of the time and the local tradition that welcomes it.

Following a chronological and thematic journey, the visitor goes through different epochs and civilizations. Universal themes and common influences are highlighted to illustrate the similarities of sharing the same human experiences across geographical, historical, and cultural realities. This is how the Louvre Abu Dhabi is a truly universal museum.

Among these exceptional works, there is a gold bracelet with lion figures made in Iran nearly 3000 years ago, a fibula (brooch) of gold and garnet from Italy dating from the fifth century after J. -C., A magnificent Virgin and Child by Bellini, paintings by Jordaens, Caillebotte, Manet, Gauguin, Magritte, an unpublished paper from Picasso and nine paintings by the American painter Cy Twombly, who disappeared a few years ago.

The collection does not only show work of art from the Middle East or the West: a Soninke / Djennenke figure from Mali, a dancing Indian dynasty or an octagonal box from China, among others, illuminate different geographical areas.

In this multidisciplinary collection, all the mediums are represented: in addition to painting, sculpture, tapestry, goldsmith and paper-glue, the Louvre Abu Dhabi will also keep a collection of photographs or a collection of creations. decorative arts: for example a decanter by Christopher Dresser (Glasgow, 1834 - Mulhouse, 1904).
