The Presidential Palace will open to the public for tours for the first time next week.
Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the UAE armed forces, tweeted the announcement that public tours would take place at the new public landmark, named Qasr Al Watan, from midday on 11th March.
In the post, the crown prince said the tours of the Abu Dhabi landmark would “serve as a knowledge base and boost cultural understanding of the UAE” and are in line with the UAE’s transition towards a knowledge-based economy as part of the Vision 2021 agenda.
Qasr Al Watan is home to a range of exhibitions, a library containing books and resources about the UAE and the House Of Knowledge, which documents Arab contributions to various fields of study.
Tickets for the tours, which take place daily between 10am and 8pm, will cost AED 60 for adults and AED 30 for children aged four to 17, with special garden-only tickets available for AED 25 for adults and AED 12 for children aged four to 17.
