Designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel, Louvre Abu Dhabi is home to artworks and installations from around the world, but it is much more than just an art gallery. The museum is surrounded by water and can be reached by either land or sea. When the sun shines through the perforations of its dome (which features 7,850 stars made up of eight layers), it offers a spectacular show called “Rain of Light”. No wonder it is the most-visited museum in the region.
