Zayed National Museum is the national museum of the United Arab Emirates. Located at the heart of Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island Cultural District, it celebrates the rich history, culture and stories of the UAE and the timeless values of the country’s founder, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, whose enduring example continues to guide the nation and its people today. Few nations have been shaped by their founder more than the UAE. Through its exhibitions, research and public programs, Zayed National Museum explores the origins of Sheikh Zayed’s own values and their lasting influence on the country that he founded. Renowned for his wisdom and humility, his life was defined by his deep devotion to his Islamic faith, his determined leadership and unshakeable belief in the power of unity. The Museum celebrates these values and his unwavering commitment to openness, knowledge and education, all embedded within a deep understanding of Emirati culture and history. As a cultural institution dedicated to knowledge creation and inclusive public engagement, Zayed National Museum builds on the longstanding role of the UAE as a global meeting place and a vibrant centre for the exchange of ideas. It aims to provide visitors with a welcoming, informative and unique experience that honours the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed and his lifelong commitment to preserving the rich culture and heritage of the UAE and its people.
