Sunset in Manarat Al Saadiyat

According to its website:

Manarat Al Saadiyat literally means ‘ the place of enlightenment’.

It is a 15,400 square meter arts and culture center, designed to bring the vision of the island to life through The Saadiyat Story. The venue also features four gallery spaces.
Located on Saadiyat, this artistic venue houses exhibitions with international collections from around the world, including three major galleries, a central events gallery, sales center, 250-seat theatre, and restaurant.

The main galleries of Manarat Al Saadiyat constitute of permanent spaces for a series of exhibitions and educational programmes organized by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority. This is part of an ongoing cultural programme dedicated to developing awareness and understanding of art and culture prior to the launch of the Saadiyat Cultural District.

I've gone too many cultural centers and museums way back in the Philippines. And I'm expecting the same concept. But I was wrong. It was indeed a refresher for myself. It took me 2 hours to finish browsing the entire galleries. Composing of different events inside. The first gallery was composed of the past, present and the future of Abu Dhabi. Gone from its native culture it was simply amazing.
From the Interactive videos that depict the future of this exceptional City.

The Saadiyat comes with 4 Galleries. Each Gallery consists of events from various organizations in UAE.

Gallery 1.

The time we visited, the organizers are introducing some diverse cultures, the technology of the future, real estate properties and of course, the history of Abu Dhabi.
