Why You Shouldn’t Miss These Activities at Louvre Abu Dhabi


Since it opened in 2017, the Louvre Abu Dhabi has tirelessly hosted a variety of arts and cultural events for people of all ages and interests.

So if you’re planning to visit the world-class museum anytime soon, you might want to check out these happenings in the coming days…

On 31st January, Ayyala performances will take place from 3pm to 5pm, every 20 minutes per hour, at the museum’s main entrance.

The Ayyala dance is also known as ‘yowalah’ and is a traditional group dance of the UAE accompanied with traditional music.

The show pays homages to Emirati heritage and culture dating back to Bedouin times. It certainly will be stunning to see 20 to 30 performers doing the dance in unison with the museum in the background.

Meanwhile at Louvre Abu Dhabi, The 10,000 Years of Luxury exhibition is still ongoing until 18th February.
