The Louvre Abu Dhabi will open to the public in December 2015. Its collection is being built up gradually. The Emirate has already acquired more than six hundred works from various countries representing a range of civilizations. One hundred fifty of these works will be featured in an exhibition entitled “Louvre Abu Dhabi: Birth of a Museum.” This exhibition also provides an opportunity to present the project for the museum, in both its architectural and cultural aspects, to the Louvre’s visitors. The Louvre Abu Dhabi will be the first universal museum to be created in this region of the world, at the crossroads of civilizations.

The major conservation project for one of the Louvre's most emblematic artworks began in September. The Winged Victory monument was dismantled and reinstalled in a neighboring room where it is being studied, cleaned and restored—the artwork will not be available for viewing until June 2014. During this time, the landing and staircase that serve as a setting for the Winged Victory are being adapted to allow visitors to circulate during the 18-month renovation period.
