        • The old fort is still being reconstructed and completion date is unknown. The Museum is open and the nicely designed building has an interesting exhibition on the History of Abu Dhabi. It has similarities with the one in Dubai but the content is better and there is more focus on how Abu Dhabi came to be. I recognized many buildings from my youth (1969-1974). Specially liked the milestone picture of the Abu Dhabi Hilton Hotel. If you come by car the museum entrance and parking is behind the barrier on Khalid Bin Waleed Road, pull up to the barrier and the guard will come out, tell him you want to visit the Museum and he will open the barrier. Entry is free, they is a booklet and the toilets are clean. Good place to visit to hear the story of the Liwa oasis residents who built up Abu Dhabi.
        • Full marks to the exhibition. Tells you everything about Abu Dhabi... right from 17th century to the future of island city. Use of technology while showing history is adorable. Free to attend Highly recommended for residents and tourists
        • Al Hosn is a small part of UAE traditional life before discovering oil. It shows many exciting and rich traditions and has very informative video displays. It opens around mid February time and a very nice place to see.
        • The exhibition was beautiful. Don't be deceived by the construction signs because the museum is in side of that. As a resident here, I learned a lot and now have a greater appreciation for Abu Dhabi.
        • Qasr Al Hosn I had an amazing experience with Qasr Al Hosn . Its Built in 1761 This location is now available on Google Street View. If you want to experience an amazing fully immersive 3D experience. Abu Dhabi’s symbolic birthplace, Qasr al Hosn is the emirate’s first permanent structure, which was home to the emirate’s ruling Al Nahyan family. A permanent, free-to-enter exhibition at the Qasr al Hosn Centre tells the story of Abu Dhabi and its people through the city’s oldest building. Fascinating oral testimonies and historic photographs bring this important monument to life. Contemporary Emirati voices reflect on Abu Dhabi’s history and transformation and Qasr al Hosn’s key role as a vibrant symbol of Emirati heritage, culture and tradition. Qasr al Hosn began life in the 1760s as a coral and sea stone watchtower, with a commanding position overlooking the sea, later transformed into an impenetrable fort. Due to the shells’ reflective effect, the fort’s walls would sparkle in the sun offering a welcome coastal navigational tool for the region’s merchants. Mangrove was chosen to make the flooring and roof structure due to its natural strength and durability. During the exploration and discovery of oil between 1939 and the 1950s, Qasr al Hosn went through a period of expansion and an iconic palace enclosed the initial fort. The Father of the Nation, the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, ordered a large scale renovation of Qasr al Hosn, transforming it from ruler’s residence into a museum and repository of collections relating to Abu Dhabi and the Gulf. Now, Qasr al Hosn is going through a new phase. Earlier this decade, it was discovered that the white render on the fort’s walls was causing corrosive moisture to be trapped on the original coral stone bricks. A project is underway to reveal the original brickwork and allow the structure to breathe.
