The Louvre Abu Dhabi is inviting culture lovers to be part of history in the making – by becoming members of the iconic museum.
Visitors can get unlimited access to the long-awaited venue, which finally opens its doors on Saturday, November 11, by signing up for the scheme.
The Louvre Abu Dhabi Art Club Membership programme – which is now open for registration – offers a Member+1 package, with unlimited access for a member and one guest, and the Member+5, which provides an uncapped amount of visits for one member and five guests.
Membership also provides a range of exclusive benefits, such as previews of the museum’s four temporary exhibits each year.
Members and their guests can also enjoy free admission to Musée du Louvre in Paris and other partner museums.
Louvre Abu Dhabi is the first museum of its kind in the Arab world: a universal museum that focuses on shared human stories across civilisations and cultures. Its approach promotes a personal interchange with art, emphasises the role of curiosity and imagination, and encourages a lifelong passion for learning in both adults and children.
The important collection of artworks and artefacts on view originates from all around the world, and spans the entirety of human existence from prehistory to the present day.
Members will be able to immerse themselves in the unique setting of the jewel of the Saadiyat Island Cultural District, experiencing the cinematic ‘Rain of Light’ effect that filters through the museum’s iconic 180-metre dome.
They will also receive priority booking and preferential prices for auditorium events, activities, workshops and guided tours, as well as a 15 percent discount at the museum café, which offers beautiful views of the Abu Dhabi waterfront.
Manuel Rabaté, director of Louvre Abu Dhabi, said: “The Art Club is a platform for meaningful enrichment, discovery and new experiences. It will be a meeting place where a unique global community comes together in an atmosphere of cultural understanding and inspiration. Membership offers unparalleled access to Louvre Abu Dhabi’s exceptional collections, exhibitions, events and special programmes.”
A 12-month Louvre Abu Dhabi Art Club membership costs Dhs450 for one member plus one guest, and Dhs1,500 for one member plus five named guests.
