THE MUSEUMS WHICH WILL OPEN IN 2017
This post is devoted to travellers, but especially to those who always search for new places which can offer also an interesting cultural experience.
2017 will be characterised by inaugurations all over the world, and I’ve decided to make a list of the most important museums which will open next months.
All you have to do is choose a destination and leave.
The most longed-for museums of 2017
The Louvre Abu Dhabi.
The long-awaited new branch of the Louvre Museum of Paris will open in Abu Dhabi.
The building has already made the history of architecture, because it seems that it rises from the water, and is poised between sand and sea. This space will house a part of the collections of the Parisian museum.
The Louvre Abu Dhabi is part of a larger project which will transform this arid land into a cultural district which can live up to the greatest European museums. Also the opening of the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi is expected in the future.
