In Photos: Louvre Abu Dhabi Artwork Collection

Here’s a virtual gallery of the Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum! We couldn’t take photos of everything inside the museum, but here are some that piqued our interest.

DISCLAIMER:
I had to resize the photos because their file sizes were HUGE, so the original quality was compromised just a little bit. If there’s any grainy shot or whatever, it’s my fault for resizing them, hehe.
