THE PER­MA­NENT COL­LEC­TION

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - TASTE OF ABU DHABI -

The mu­seum be­gins with a pro­logue room ti­tled the Grand Vestibule. Upon the floor, the jagged line of the coast­line of the UAE ap­pears to en­cour­age the vis­i­tor to feel like a mar­itime ex­plorer, metaphor­i­cally washed up on the shores of Abu Dhabi and about to en­ter a brave new world. The rest of the con­tent is laid out over 12 rooms or chap­ters. It starts in the pre­his­toric ages and moves to the present day. Thanks to the clever pre­sen­ta­tion, it makes a vis­i­tor feel as if they are walk­ing through the story of the his­tory of all civil­i­sa­tion. As you move from one hall to the next, it is as if a new page of his­tory is be­ing turned.
