Opened to the public in 2018, Qasr Al Hosn is the oldest and most significant building in Abu Dhabi, holding the city’s first permanent structure: the watchtower. Built around the 1790’s, the commanding structure overlooked the costal trade routes and protected the growing settlement established on the island. Qasr Al Hosn is now a museum displaying of artifacts and archival materials dating back to as far as 6000 BC.
