Right at the heart of the Saadiyat Cultural District is the Zayed National Museum which showcases
the story of the unification of the United Arab Emirates through the life and times of the late Sheikh
Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan – father of the nation. It also charts the more recent social and economic
transformation of the Emirates. Elevated at the highest point overlooking the rest of the cultural
district, it will be a place where visitors can learn all about the history of the region and its cultural
connections across the world. A fitting tribute in memory of Sheikh Zayed, Lord Foster’s aim “to
create a feeling of discovering something” can’t fail to be achieved with a visit to the Zayed National
Museum – there is simply so much to discover. He has created a museum that fulfils his desire for the
visitor to have an enlightening, informative and enjoyable experience.
