Renowned for its forward-thinking art scene and landmark institutions, the Abu Dhabi is a top spot for museums and exciting exhibitions… 


If you have kids in tow, you can send them on an interactive educational journey thanks to A Costume Adventure at the Children’s Museum at Louvre Abu Dhabi. Little learners can view the original artworks on display and complete various challenges, collecting accessories to transform them into real-life versions of the art. Mission complete, head out into the museum galleries to see all the great exhibits. Suitable for ages 4-10 (a toddler space for under 4s is also available).


The oldest and most significant heritage site in the UAE capital, Qasr Al Hosn has been carefully restored as a cultural monument dedicated to keeping the emirate’s history alive. The Inner Fort exhibition tells the story of the site and all it has witnessed, offering a glimpse into everyday life in the fort, which was once home to the ruling family. The Outer Palace displays the stories of the people who lived in there through film, interactive displays and spoken testimonies.


Relive your college days by paying a trip the NYU Abu Dhabi campus, which is home to its very own academic museum-gallery showcasing international and local exhibitions. Art buffs can expect to see experimental pieces that step outside the box. This September, the Speculative Landscapes exhibition is set to do just that, with installations by four UAE-based artists that offer an ethereal take on the natural environment. From 16 September to 7 December.
