The Qasr al-Hosn is an exhibition centre displaying the historic events in the past of the city of Abu Dhabi. It is alo the oldest exhibition in Abu Dhabi and is the narration of the story of Abu Dhabi and its people.
This iconic structure, featured on the back of the AED 1000 note, was built in 1760 as a watchtower in order to safeguard the freshwater well. Later on, after expansion in 1793, it served as an ancestral home of the ruling Al Nahyan family and remained in the hands of the royal family until 1966. However, currently an intriguing oration of its testimony and exhibit of photographs brings back the past to life. The Emirati voices contemplate on the city's past and its transformation over the years along with the key role of Qasr al-Hosn in Emirati tradition and culture.
