What you can expect when Louvre Abu Dhabi reopens on June 24

Louvre Abu Dhabi will reopen to the public on June 24.

The Saadiyat Island museum had been closed, along with many other attractions, since the end of March to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Now, the cultural site is ready to open its doors to visitors while adhering to strict safety guidelines.

Tickets are now available to purchase on the museum’s website and must be bought before visitors travel to the museum for their visit.

All ticket holders will be given a specific visit time with their tickets allowing up to three hours inside the museum from the time of entry.

Children under the age of 18 will be allowed free access.

Revised opening hours have also been launched with the museum being open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6.30pm.

A limited number of visitors per hour will be permitted to ensure safe social distancing and all visitors must wear a face mask, gloves and undergo thermal testing upon entry.

Visitors can explore the museum’s permanent collection and the Furusiyya: the art of Chivalry between East and West exhibition, which has been extended until October 18.

Louvre Abu Dhabi isn’t the only cultural site reopening to the public this week.

Other sites open for visitors from June 24 include Qasr Al Hosn and the Cultural Foundation in Abu Dhabi and the outdoor areas of Qasr Al Muwaiji, Al Jahili Fort, Al Ain Place Museum and Al Ain Oasis in Al Ain.

Giving you even more reasons to visit Louvre Abu Dhabi, high-end French restaurant Fouquet’s has also reopened to the public.
