The Louvre Abu Dhabi Announces Opening Date for November 2017

After a five-year delay, caused partly by a global financial crisis and plummet in oil prices, the Louvre Abu Dhabi will finally open to the public on November 11. The Gulf branch of the iconic Paris museum was originally slated to open in 2012, and then 2016. The announcement of a definite opening date was made at a press conference in the United Arab Emirates capital shortly after a speech by Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, the UAE Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development.
