Louvre Abu Dhabi’s Children’s Museum will reopen to the public on 18 June with a new exhibition that will take children on an interactive adventure of art and activities that will help them identify and explore their emotions, the museum revealed in its official press release.
Combining entertainment and education for children aged four to 10, 'Emotions!: The New Art Adventure' will feature ten artworks and four interactive stations, which will familiarise visitors with four main emotions: joy/serenity, sadness, fear, and anger.
The extensive cultural programme targeting the young audience will also include film screenings; three feature films by Rinku Awtani: ‘The Secret World of Arrietty’ by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, ‘The Breadwinner’ by Nora Twomey, and ‘Inside Out’ by Pete Doctor.
 Additionally, five short films will also be featured, including ‘Looks’ by Susann Hoffmann, ‘3Feet’ by Giselle Geney, ‘AMENTI’ by Kamela Bentouati and Amandine Dazin, ‘Grandpa’s Nursery Rhyme’ by Yoshiko Misumi, and ‘Hair Love’ by Matthew A. Cherry.
The Children’s Museum is an ongoing exhibition platform and extension of Louvre Abu Dhabi’s educational programming. Since opening in 2017, it has welcomed children and families with three original exhibitions: ‘Travelling Shapes and Colours’ (2017 –2018); ‘Animals, Between Real and Imaginary’ (2018 –2019); and ‘A Costume Adventure’ (2019 –2020).
