While the Louvre Abu Dhabi is closed, you can soak up that art inspiration at home.

The museum has launched a series of digital experiences to help get us through lockdown.

New features include a 360-degree virtual tour of the museum’s latest international exhibition, 'Furusiyya: The Art of Chivalry Between East and West.'

There are also resources for families and everything can be accessed for free on Louvre Abu Dhabi's website and social media channels, where they're available in Arabic, English and French.

Or to dive into more than 150 audio pieces, videos, text, pictures and 3D views of the museum’s architecture and artwork, download the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s mobile app. It's free from Google Play or Apple Store and is available in seven languages, including English, Arabic, French, German, Hindi, Mandarin, and Russian.

Coming soon on the website are audio and virtual tours of the permanent galleries and an immersive science fiction experience of the museum’s stunning architecture, as well as excerpts from Louvre Abu Dhabi’s publications.

Manuel Rabaté, director of Louvre Abu Dhabi, says: “While Louvre Abu Dhabi is temporarily closed, our mission of sharing stories of cultural connections continues.

"Turning to art in difficult times can be truly inspiring and rewarding. Louvre Abu Dhabi has been developing and adding to its digital offerings, providing further access to rich content and enhancing the experience for our audiences from the comfort of their own homes."
