Louvre Abu Dhabi was established to focus on stories of human creativity. The museum brings different cultures together to shine fresh light on these common stories of humanity. In light of the intergovernmental agreement signed between the UAE and France in 2007, the museum seeks to gradually expand its collection through acquisition plans defined by an acquisition committee, and in line with its long term scientific and narrative plans. The museum collaborates with French, regional and international cultural partners to exchange loans, build partnerships and develop its Temporary Exhibitions Program, which features renowned exhibitions and masterpieces. Through a series of scheduled annual rotations, artworks that represent the collection and the external loans are reallocated to renew the narrative and the museography.
The museum was able to advance on its acquisition plans, adding towards the national collection of Louvre Abu Dhabi and developing its universal narrative and content. The collection is constantly growing, reaching more than 600 objects at the moment.
Visitor surveys have indicated excellent feedback and high levels of satisfaction from the museum visitors in regards to the collection and the display of the narrative.
