Qasr Al Watan Abu Dhabi - celebrating the UAE’s heritage, traditions and values

Housed within the Presidential Palace compound in Abu Dhabi, Qasr Al Watan is the nation’s newest cultural landmark offering a unique insight into the UAE’s heritage, traditions and values. 

The Qasr Al Watan Experience was designed, developed and is now managed by Miral. At Qasr Al Watan, visitors gain a deeper understanding of the UAE’s governing traditions and values, and will be able to learn more about the well-preserved legacy of knowledge and tradition. Visitors can explore a vast collection of artefacts and manuscripts that highlight the Arab world’s contributions to various intellectual fields including science, arts, humanities and literature. 

It is also home to the Qasr Al Watan Library, where scholars can explore a vast collection of books and resources about the UAE and learn about the nation’s progressive journey. 

Projected onto the façade of the building every night, visitors can also enjoy the “Palace in Motion” light and sound show which was designed by Miral to offer an enriching and inspiring cultural experience, and is a testament to its commitment to building immersive experiences.
