Visit the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s “Picturing the Cosmos” exhibition which is held at the in-house Children’s Museum. Running for two years until June 2025, it was created in collaboration with the UAE Space Agency and the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre. The exhibition features the first ever two loans from the Natural History Museum Abu Dhabi (NHMAD). These are a lunar meteorite found in north-west Africa and the 7 billion year old Murchison meteorite discovered in 1969 near the Australian town of Murchison.
