Zayed Centre

  • Sheikh Zayed Centre
  • Sheikh Zayed Centre

For a fascinating sneak peek into the life of the late Sheikh Zayed, affectionately known as the 'Father of the Nation', visit the Zayed Centre in Abu Dhabi's Al Bateen district.

This museum, housed in an Emirati heritage village replete with camels, is an incredible homage to the man who shaped the nation. A photo gallery of Sheikh Zayed and many visiting regional and international royalty and dignitaries lines the walls of the museum, which is also full of personal memorabilia such as his favourite hunting rifles.

Taking centre stage are the late President's cherished vehicles - which he often drove through the city without a bodyguard - and gifts he received from all over the world such as stuffed lions and cheetahs.

Opening times:
Sunday to Thursday (closed over the weekend Friday/Saturday). Guided tours in English and Arabic are available, however you need to book at least one week in advance.
