After the tour, in the conversation with the journalists President Sarkissian noted that he was very impressed and that Louvre Abu Dhabi is a special museum.

“The Armenian art should certainly be presented here. The management of the Museum is aware that we have had a splendid exhibition in Metropolitan Museum in New York dedicated to the Armenian cultural heritage and traditions,” President Sarkissian said and noted that the management of Louvre Abu Dhabi aspires to have a beautiful exhibit of the Armenian art in their museum.

Mrs. Nouneh Sarkissian too had wonderful impressions and said that along with the exhibition, the museum stands out for its exquisite architecture and design. “Exhibits here are few and well-chosen.
