A global headline-grabber and a gallery of international importance the outpost of the famed French cultural hub is the jewel in the crown of Abu Dhabi’s art scene. As well as being able to see works from artists such as da Vinci, Warhol, Pollock, Matisse. Manet and Mondrian it has an enormous collection of historical artefacts. From an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus to a history of luxury items and fashion through the ages there is more to see than you can savour on one visit. Especially when you consider the curated exhibitions and additions that roll throughout the year. We’d be happy merely to come and marvel at the building itself, but membership and patronage of the gallery is worth looking at to discover the splendour that lies within.
