Qasr Al Hosn

Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority officially opened the revamped Qasr Al Hosn Exhibition to the public yesterday, granting visitors insight into Abu Dhabi’s rich cultural heritage and its development, as well as the history of the region surrounding Qasr Al Hosn.

A hub for education, culture and entertainment, the exhibition additionally sheds light on the restoration and conservation development project that includes Qasr Al Hosn and its surrounding area.

The Qasr Al Hosn master plan was launched earlier on in the week by Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. It scheduled to reach completion next year.


The exhibition is made up of nine exhibition zones, all of which narrate the 450-year old story of Abu Dhabi from its establishment to the present.

Moving through the zones, visitors can enjoy an impressive collection of oral testimonies, historical photographs and other materials depicting the history of the region, and the vital role of Qasr Al Hosn within Abu Dhabi as a beacon of heritage, culture and Emirati tradition.
