We went for an exhibition and it was good. Well organized, buildings architecture is unique, facilities are nice and clean. Would like to go again if there are any other events / exhibitions.

Masdar City is different. We were there earlier on today to visit as the kids went to play football on one of the outdoor football pitches (one of our friends works for Masdar). Conceived to be a futuristic city, there were really grand plans for what it would be. Sure the buildings are energy efficient, renewables are used and a... More

A time pass if you dont have anything to do over an evening. So obviously wont recommend for someone who has traveled to visit Abu Dhabi. You have a lot other places to visit.. But its a reasonable time pass for residents of the city. The PRT (Personal Rapid Transport) is a very different experience. Its like a 4 seater... More

If you're interested in architecture, urban design, zero emission or renewable energy, Masdar City has many spots to visit and see. You should see its website or related links before your visit for preparation; and for that matter, I suggest that you should ask someone to act as a guide who knows in detail about Masdar City, if you can....

I am not sure what I expected from this place but it did nothing for me.I can appreciate the environment issues but there was no atmosphere and not much to see.we parked at ground level so did not experience the futuristic cars that bring you from the underground parking. From what I gather this is the highlight for most people.... More

I am very disappointed of this place. This is masdar city and should be the place of the future? This place has huge potential but today there is nothing to see except the automatic vehicles. I would not advice you to go there as tourist.

We went there with kids but had nothing much to do except for the solar driven auto car which takes you around no other activity ....not worth going.

If you want to have a look at how the future will look like, go to masdar city. The architecture is amazing, and the vision they have is undelievable. Park your car and take a ride on an electrical car. It is still not fully ready to welcome tourists, but definetly worth the trip.

We were captivated by this site, and it started with the PRT (Personal Rapid Transit...4 passenger cars running with software and magnets) and included the solar blocks and wind towers. We looked at every inch open to us and were amazed at what has been built and what will be built.I will be following its construction from afar and often.... More

My sister in law is a student at Masdar, hence I had the chance to visit it with a very knowledgeable tour guide that has A LOT to say about every corner and curve. Every single facility has a story behind it, a quite interesting story. Main attractions to see, I would vote for: the library, the dorms, the wind... More
