This amazing glance at the future is still very new and not exactly ready for primetime. It's hard to find transportation to and from. However, it is not to be missed. The technology on display, including electric cars, are well worth seeing.

Visited Masdar city with friends. Found it very interesting. Need to praise the government of UAE for investing into the future. Trying to find alternative ways of getting the power is not easy but Masdar city has done it. Very educational and useful. This is the city of future. Would suggest this place for everyone.

We spend a family morning out and is definitely with a visit. You arrive and have to park the car to take an electric car to reach the main building. Nice ride and kids will love this. Once you reach there you have dining options, a coffee shop as well as an organic shop. Take also a stroll around as... More

I consider Masdar city a place still worthy to visit, even though it seems it is not well manage and not well address for the attractive environmental concept, it seems a gosh city. The place is quiet, thereby, It is a good place to sit at any of the coffee shops, have a talk, take a breath. if you are... More

We visited here with friends for coffee and cakes. You park in the car park and get a small unmanned guided electric vehicle to the main university campus which has a variety of cafes and restaurants. Worth a visit for the fun of it.

A unique experience, you travel on a futuristic autonomous robotic car from the car park to the city - fun and informative. Great experience, unreal architectural concepts for cooling, power and lighting. There is a great sushi restaurant and organic grocery store inside.

A great spot to see the "future". Don't miss the driverless PRT at the basement. Roam around the silver and terra cotta buildings and the helmet shaped library building. You can't believe that this is actually a university.

Not much to see but a nice walk around the courtyards. A pleasant hour spent on a hot day, lots of places to eat as well

I had heard much about Masdar when I was in the uk and had great expectations when visiting abu dhabi with my family. I was smaller than I thought but only phase 2 of 6 phases are complete. it is also a university of science and technology and seems a great place to study. we spend 2 hours there which... More
