Can you imagine gliding through the water around Louvre Abu Dhabi while watching a screening on the water from your Kayak? Well now you can.

At The Kayak Cinema Show, everyone who’s enjoying our kayaking tour can pause for moment and watch a short film that we project onto the museum wall. It’s a fun and unusual way to see a film while gently floating on the water, and provides a pleasant break as you explore Louvre Abu Dhabi from the sea.

For a limited time, you can now book a special kayaking tour that includes the screening of the short film ‘Hair Love’. It’s is an uplifting 7-minute film about a young girl who wants to style her unruly hair. Her dad tries to help, but it takes some determination to succeed. The film is about love, confidence and family and it embodies a mix of emotions from happiness to fear and from hesitation to pride.

It’s one of the series of films we’re showing as part of our new Children’s Museum exhibition: Emotions! The new art adventure.
