The Gulf Museum Educators Network (GMEN) held its fifth meeting in Abu Dhabi, 30 September through 1 October 2016. In addition to enjoying presentations on select education programmes implemented in region, the group had the opportunity to explore several of the local museums. A hard hat visit to the Louvre Abu Dhabi (above) was one of the highlights of the meeting; second only to the hospitality of Laura Matzer and her team at TCA Abu Dhabi.
