The name Hosn refers to the In­ner Fort, Abu Dhabi’s first build­ing, erected in 1795. Qasr refers to the Outer Palace built around the In­ner Fort by Sheikh Shakhbut bin Sul­tan Al Nahyan in the 1940s, to house the rul­ing fam­ily.

Pub­lic pro­gram­ming in­cludes spe­cial­ist tours on ar­chae­ol­ogy and ar­chi­tec­ture as well as re-en­act­ments of as­pects of daily life and ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren.
