Manuel Rabaté, Director of Louvre Abu Dhabi, noted “We look forward to giving our museum back to the community and resuming our physical role as a space for sharing our many stories of cultural connections. As we prepare to reopen, we are furthering our commitment to being a mindful museum – a concept that has always been a part of our DNA and is now more urgent than ever before. This approach extends throughout our programming, collection, and the museum building itself as a meditative and contemplative space for the community to come together and find solace through culture, while feeling comfortable and safe. We have planned carefully and methodically alongside the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi to ensure that the appropriate health and safety measures are in place. I want to thank our dedicated staff for their resilience and hard work to prepare for this moment. We are eager and excited to welcome back visitors soon.”
