Abu Dhabi Art
Nov 2019
It is a nice venue for exhibits and special events. I went for the Abu Dhabi Art which was disappointing by itself with very poor quality art. It is in Saadiyat which is a newly developing cultural neighborhood.

Nice Venue
Sep 2019
We came here during Abu Dhabi Family week to see Ping Fong/Baby Shark Live. The venue was nice however this show was disappointing. We paid £130 for 3 tickets to discover the organisers had rearranged the seating plan, we were able to obtain a partial refund. The merchandise was ridiculously priced, a small Ping Fong toy for nearly £30.

Nice place to visit
Jul 2019 • Family
Very nice and quit place to visit. Small exhibition of aerial pictures. we enjoy a mango ice crime on the Salt shop.

Need 1 hour to make a tour plus enjoying a ice cream.

There is also a restaurant but we dont try it.

The garden look clean and green, but the hot weather is a brake for enjoying the garden.

Bad point: the coffe corner was closed.

Good point the ecposition is free and there is so many exhibition all the year

It’s nice and they have good cafe there
Sep 2018 • Friends
Very briefly about things to do in Manarat al Saadiyat:
1) Good to spend your time here if you are not in a hurry. Just walk around and observe, make photos and have fun.
2) You can eat at the cafe (if I am not mistaken, it’s the same building). They have coffee and juices, some snacks and breakfast. Not sure about other options. Gonna try some day🤔🤪
3) It’s a good place to watch famous and old-fashioned movies (google for the timing)
4) Very close to the beach (I walked for about 15 minutes and got there for free🗝😎🧠).
5) Don’t miss the opportunity to visit NYUAD campus (what a chance if you want to explore the island): parks, nice coffee shops and so on.

Lovely visit
Feb 2019 • Couples
We visited towards the end of the day, and - for the most part - we were the only two visitors going round the galleries. It was lovely to see some local artists' work being shown.

The staff were friendly, helpful and professional, and the collections great.

Manarat Al Saadiyat - a lovely place to visit
Dec 2018 • Family
Manarat Al Saadiyat is a lovely place to visit. Its gardens are calm and tranquil. This is a restful place and great for all the family. It has 'lost' Al Fanr restaurant which was a wonderful place to eat. Also, it is 'out of the way' and you need to travel to get there. But it is worth the trip.

Beautiful gallery!
Dec 2018 • Solo
Visited here recently and was so pleasantly surprised. The gallery is huge and so bright and well lit. Lovely works of art were on display in different sections. The cafe was also quite decent. Such a beautiful space to visit. Worth spending time here if you're in Abu Dhabi.
