A new family-friendly exhibition has opened at Louvre Abu Dhabi

Louvre Abu Dhabi has opened a brand-new family-friendly exhibition.

Furusiyya: the art of Chivalry between East and West allows little ones to channel their inner warrior at a new exhibition and by joining in a fun-filled workshop.

Kids will find out how ancient battles were fought, learn about the roles medieval knights and female warriors played on the battlefield as well as the armour they wore to protect themselves when they were fighting.

The exhibition is on until Saturday May 30.

And to celebrate the new exhibition, the museum is hosting a family weekend on Friday February 28 and Saturday February 29 between 3pm and 7pm.

A variety of workshops will be on offer where boys and girls can make their own armour, listen to tales of courageous adventures and watch Louvre Abu Dhabi’s Youth Festival parade celebrating creative costumes designed by school children.

Plus, when the mini knights have made their own costumes, they can put them into action to see whether they stand up in battle and enjoy pony rides in Louvre Abu Dhabi’s park.

There will also be mini tours, live horse shows, film screenings and falconry displays.

But that’s not all. Families can also catch The Singing Trees until Saturday March 7, a choir of palm trees that sing louder when they are hugged, as well as a falconry display and family film screenings.

So grab your army and head to Louvre Abu Dhabi.
