  • Louvre Abu Dhabi’s Children’s Museum

Louvre Abu Dhabi

Louvre’s Children’s Museum will take children on an interactive adventure of art and activities that will help them identify and explore their emotions, taking a gamification approach to education for children.

Combining entertainment and education for children aged four to 10, Emotions!: The New Art Adventure will feature ten artworks and four interactive stations, which will familiarize visitors with four main emotions: joy/serenity, sadness, fear, and anger.

This approach engages all the children’s senses, teaches empathy, helps build an understanding of emotions and their expression, while they play and collect achievement points for tasks completed.

To ensure the safety of all visitors, Children’s Museum activities feature touchless components and single-use activity materials.

Emotions!: The New Art Adventure will also be accompanied by an extensive cultural programme that will be available at the museum. Films focussing on emotions will be screened in the museum’s auditorium on Saturdays — 26th June and 3rd July.

The films curated by Rinku Awtani include three feature films: The Secret World of Arrietty by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, The Breadwinner by Nora Twomey, and Inside Out by Pete Docter, in addition to five short films; Looks by Susann Hoffmann, 3Feet by Giselle Geney, AMENTI by Kamela Bentouati and Amandine Dazin, Grandpa’s Nursery Rhyme by Yoshiko Misumi and Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry.

In addition, Cherry’s Hair Love will also be projected on the museum’s wall on all three days for visitors and kayakers to enjoy outdoors.

With pre-recorded workshops as part of the Children’s Museum main activities, local artists Shaima Al Amri, Ali Kashwani and Maryam Al Atouly, children can engage in at their own pace. The workshops will show children how to express feelings through artistic activities, such as drawing, collage and 2D sculpture.

More information about the film screenings is available on the museum’s website, as well as the option to pre-book a place. The Children’s Museum is free to all children. Families need only purchase museum admission tickets for accompanying adults for the whole family to access all Louvre Abu Dhabi galleries and exhibitions.

Access to the Children’s Museum is included in the cost of admission, which is free for anyone under 18.

  • Watch “Behind-the-Scene” Work in the Galleries for the First Time

Carpets on display Louvre Abu Dhabi

BTS!! For the first time history! Between 20th to 24th June June, Louvre Abu Dhabi’s visitors will be able to see the treatment of the “three-medallion carpet” live in the permanent galleries. Produced by the court workshops of the capital of the Mameluke dynasty (1250-1517) in Cairo, this woolen carpet has been cut and reduced in length, during its long history.

The textile conservator will be mounting the carpet on a new rigid support, which will help in distributing its weight, thereby minimizing any structural tension. This new mounting system will prolong the life of the carpet in the best possible conditions for the future.
