This Is What the Abu Dhabi Presidential Palace Looks like from Inside!
March 11, 2019
Last week it was announced that part of the Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi will open it’s door to the public. And we of course expected it to be royal, but we weren’t ready for this.
It’s an architectural masterpiece!

Guests can now visit part of the presidential palace complex, named the “Qasr al-Watan Palace” or “Palace of the Nation”, which gives us a peak at the most important palace in the state. By making this section open to the public, the nation now has a new cultural landmark for guests to add to their itineraries. Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed, deputy chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council, said the site “adds value and sheds light on the cultural renaissance journey in the UAE”.
The landmark is open from today at noon and visitors will be taken on a tour to promote the nation’s culture and history. The palace was inaugurated by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE’s Armed Forces and HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai.

The tour includes a visit to the library that has shelves full of books and resources on the UAE’s political, social and cultural history. Guests can also look forward to interactive cultural shows and the House of Knowledge which hosts a collection of artifacts and manuscripts that shed light on the Arab world’s contribution to science, humanities, art and literature.
The Qasr al-Watan Palace will be open daily from 10am to 8pm.
