Manarat Al Saadiyat- Feed your mind with the rich diversity and culture of Abu Dhabi

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, a sales center, a 250-seat theatre, and a restaurant. 

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

I've gone to 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 me. It took me 2 hours to finish browsing the entire gallery. Composing of different events inside. The first gallery was composed of the past, present, and 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 Galleries consists of events from various organizations in UAE.

Gallery 1.

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

Photography. If you are a photo enthusiast then surely you will appreciate the stuff here.

The gallery was divided into 3 sections. These sections come with different photo themes. There was an entry from different categories. Raw and unedited pictures. Different pictures were hung on the wall. From the best of the best photographs. The competition was open to any nationality.
I'm not into photography, but I always take a selfie a lot. yay!:) 

If you are into books having some bookworm moments. The library is best for you. See the grills, side by side of this pano shot.?  Behind these grills are books. About Abu Dhabi and another genre as well.

Hmmm. I wish there was a book buffet :) kidding ;) ....
