Qasr Al Muwaiji Events

Organised by Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi

Qasr Al Muwaiji, the birthplace of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, will celebrate the nation’s poets and writers each month with Poetry Evenings, accompanied by educational workshops, while weekly Ayyala and Harbiya performances will take place in the palace courtyard. Additional workshops at Qasr Al Muwaiji will include a monthly Etiquette and Protocol session called Yalsa for the community and a Royal ‘Bisht’ Workshop, which will showcase the different patterns that each UAE ruler had on his bisht, followed by sewing workshops. 

A Falconer’s Camp will run every week from October 2017 through to April 2018, where visitors can become falconers for an hour; while the Little Museum Professionals programme will allow children to run Qasr Al Muwaiji on Fridays from May 2018 through to September 2018 under the watchful eye of the museum’s visitor services team.
