Louvre Abu Dhabi is adding to its current digital offering, providing free access to more content through virtual tours, video, audio and downloadable activities, a report said.
This development brings Louvre Abu Dhabi’s stories of cultural connections - of its artworks and exhibitions - to audiences around the world, ensuring that the museum remains accessible, news agency WAM reported.
"While Louvre Abu Dhabi is temporarily closed, our mission of sharing stories of cultural connections continues," said Manuel Rabaté, director of Louvre Abu Dhabi.
"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."
"New digital features include a virtual 360-tour of our most recent exhibition, as well as online resources and activities that bring our collection to life. We will continue to tell the stories of our museum, with the hope that they offer solace, peace and inspiration," Rabaté explained.
The first phase of Louvre Abu Dhabi’s expanded digital offering includes exploration and discovery of the museum’s collection and exhibitions through Louvre Abu Dhabi’s website, mobile app and 'Art From Home' online resources; make and play, a series of online videos and colouring activities for families and children; and rich digital learning resources for teachers to engage with their students, the report said.
The museum will launch additional programmes in the coming weeks and months, including immersive audio and virtual tours of the permanent galleries, an immersive science fiction experience of the museum’s iconic architecture, excerpts from Louvre Abu Dhabi’s publications available on the website, enhanced content on past exhibitions, and more.
All digital content is available in three languages - Arabic, English and French - and is accessible through Louvre Abu Dhabi’s website and social media accounts, it said.
