The Louvre Abu Dhabi is located on the island of Saadiyat, northeast of the city center. This international museum is dedicated to art and civilization. Several pavilions of the museum are located under a large mesh dome that looks like a knit of palm leaves. Architects intended to produce the effect of the sun's rays breaking through the palm tree canopy in the oasis. The exhibits in the Louvre Abu Dhabi are of the highest quality, and they are often interactive and multimedial. Visitors have noticed that observing the exhibits is like sliding through time and civilization.
