Louvre Abu Dhabi will launch its latest interactive children’s exhibition Picturing the Cosmos tomorrow, 20 July, in collaboration with the UAE Space Agency and Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre.
It's been inspired by the human fascination with the cosmos and the infinity of space, and your kids can embark on an educational and inspiring adventure to explore the celestial universe through immersive displays and artworks spanning time and cultures.
Running until June 2025, Picturing the Cosmos lets young visitors to use their creativity to become space explorers, just like Emirati astronauts Hazza Al Mansoori and Sultan Al Neyadi.
There are different interactive areas across the three levels of the Children’s Museum which are guided by the well-known characters Mansour and Shamma, and each floor covers a different theme: the observation of the sky; the planets and the constellations from Earth; and space navigation and Mars exploration.
The exhibition will also address questions such as ‘Why have humans always been fascinated by the cosmos?’ and ‘How has the sky been a source of inspiration and imagination through ages?’.
The exhibition also features 25 artworks from different cultures and civilisations, including an astrolabe from the Louvre Abu Dhabi collection, an astronaut suit from UAE Space Agency and the Lunar meteorite, one of the largest pieces of the moon ever to be found, from the collection of the Natural History Museum Abu Dhabi.
