By 2025, residents and tourists in the UAE can expect one more travel hotspot to open when construction of the Saadiyat Cultural District is completed.

According to the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), the Saadiyat Cultural District and its cultural institutions are on track for completion in 2025.

Saadiyat Cultural District will have more world-class museums to showcase the region’s heritage while promoting a diverse global cultural landscape.

Once completed, the diversity of Saadiyat Cultural District’s institutions will make the district one of the most unique cultural platforms. It is already the home of Louvre Abu Dhabi – the first universal museum in the Arab world and the Berklee Abu Dhabi school for music and arts.

Construction of the Zayed National Museum is underway, along with teamLab Phenomena Abu Dhabi. Also to open on Saadiyat Cultural District is the Natural History Museum Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi.

Saadiyat Cultural District pays homage to the legacy of the UAE’s founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed, who defined the cultural agenda and unveiled the history of the UAE to the world through archaeological excavations and findings.

Mohamed Al Mubarak, Chairman of DCT Abu Dhabi, said, “Saadiyat Cultural District embodies ‘cultural hope’. The District will convey a message of cultural diversity that will become more powerful over time, creating global connections, inspiring cultural exchange, and fostering new ways of thinking to support the region, the global South and the world. Saadiyat Cultural District is somewhere people can come to learn from the past, understand our present and focus on our future.” ICA/Expat Media
