To thank them for their dedication, it is our pleasure to offer complimentary access to two of DCT Abu Dhabi’s most spectacular cultural assets, a way of encouraging them to take some time to reflect, recharge, and reconnect with their creative sides. As these professionals have healed and protected so many in our community, may the treasures contained within Louvre Abu Dhabi and Qasr Al Hosn comfort and replenish them in turn.”
