The famous art and civilization museum The Louvre Abu Dhabi recently replaced the Gulf map which omitted Qatar. The mentioned map was placed in the children’s museum. According to a statement by the Louvre this was an “oversight” that had been rectified.
Following the replacement of the map, Emirati foreign minister Anwar Gargash said he had been “mystified” by Al-Thani’s tweet, which “blew a slight oversight out of proportion”.
he added that “Culture is superior to such trifles.”
Earlier in November the French President Emmanuel Macron and Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan inaugurated the museum. The Louvre Abu Dhabi is dedicated to art and civilization and has been called “a universal museum” celebrating cultural exchange and tolerance.
