Louvre Abu Dhabi, cousin to the original French one The Louvre Paris, is offering virtual tours amid the coronavirus outbreak. The museum, alike many other art galleries and other type of public places, remain closed due to the ongoing pandemic. Art lovers can still experience an authentic visit to the unique Louvre through the app of the museum.
There are 8,000 square meters (86,000 square ft.) of galleries to choose from. Listen to the audio tours as the team takes you on a once-in-a-lifetime tour through 150 virtual tours around the Louvre. Known as the largest art museum in the Arabian Peninsula, Louvre Abu Dhabi opened its doors for the public in November 2017 and has put countless exhibitions on show. Users of the app can choose between 7 languages - French, Arabic, Mandarin, German English, Russian and Hindi.
Some of the artefacts on display tell the stories Neolithic revolutions, whilst others will take you back in time to ancient Mesopotamian civilisations and take you through the lifestyle of other cultures. The app is designed to experience the museum in the same way you would if you were visiting in person. Regardless of whether you want to pay attention to certain exhibits, if you are interested in faced-paced walk through the world-famous artefacts on display or if you're more interested in the architectural side of things, the app can adapt to your wishes.
Download the free app from Apple App Store or Google Play and explore the Louvre through a catalogue of videos, virtual tours and personalised guides through the exhibitions you're most interested in.
