Situated at the lush Al Ain Oasis in Abu Dhabi’s garden city of Al Ain, about an hour and a half away from the city by car, the Eco-Centre is a wonderful place to learn more about the history of the emirate.
Al Ain Oasis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site boasting a still-operational traditional falaj (ancient irrigation system) and meandering pathways shaded beneath a thick canopy of 147,000 date palms and other fruit trees. It’s the perfect place to bring family or friends and see what agriculture in this region has looked like for millennia.
The Eco-Centre is an eco-friendly building which acts as a time machine in taking us from the present back into the past. It has interactive screens and educational activities which tell the story of Al Ain Oasis from its beginnings.
The centre offers visitors an enriching experience that sheds light on the site’s history and heritage.
