Take an immersive tour of Qasr Al Watan
Housed within the Presidential Palace compound, Qasr Al Watan is a unique landmark that takes visitors on a cultural journey and invites them to explore a vast collection of cultural artefacts, art and rare manuscripts. To create an experience for younger guests, Qasr Al Watan have launched a multimedia guide catered exclusively to children. The script is a child-friendly version of the adult experience to ensure kids can follow and understand the descriptions of the Palace’s wonders. To make things more interesting, the guide includes interactive and immersive games for children to play. Upon completing a game, they are awarded a virtual badge that represents an aspect of the UAE. Once they collect all the badges, children are given a ‘Najm Al Qasr’ (Star of the Palace) certificate for all their hard work. Sunday to Wednesday, from 10am to 6pm and Thursday to Saturday, from 12pm to 8pm.
