The world famous name of the Louvre now has a second home in the Middle East. The Louvre Abu Dhabi has been formally opened which allows the loan of the name for 30 years.

The new museum will show hundreds of works from every culture and era, half on loan from France's most prestigious museum collections. They are housed beneath a spectacular domed roof -- designed to allow the desert sun to filter through.
