You will be amazed by the new Abu Dhabi branch of the legendary Parisian art museum, for the building itself (designed by Pritzker-award winning architect Jean Nouvel) is a marvel in itself.

The collections feature works form all over the world, spanning the Neolithic era to the present day. These are strikingly displayed not by era or country of origin, but by theme. Your excursion begins with a scenic ride along the corniche to the Emirates Palace. Built in 2005, this landmark is one of the largest and most luxurious hotels in Abu Dhabi, with a grand dome and 114 smaller ones. Its colors are meant to reflect all the different shades of Arabian Desert sand.
