I was absolutely taken with our experience with the Louvre Abu Dhabi. Knowing that it is a new and small museum I was most impressed with the verity of displays. It took us about 2 hours to wonder through all the halls. Each hall held items of interest and verity.
We bought our tickets online before arriving which was definitely something I would recommend as it was so easy and helped us avoid the cues at the ticket desk. We also bought tickets for the multimedia guide. If you want a multimedia guide you must buy tickets first either online or at the ticket desk BEFORE cueing at the multimedia desk. I saw 3 families cue to buy tickets and collect at this desk and where turned away to buy the tickets first at the ticket desk. This would be a very frustrating start to your tour.
We bought 2 tickets for the multimedia guides as we were 2 adults. When we got there I saw that the multimedia guides are iPads. I didn't want to have to carry 2 iPads around so we ended up only taking 1 and sharing the earphones. The guide was easy to use and informative but you definitely don't need one. Everything is well labeled and the staff in each hall are extremely helpful and very approachable.
The building its self is magnificent and adds greatly to the overall feeling. Its a beautiful and peaceful experience. I can not wait to return for many more visits.
