Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) announced the opening of the Qasr Al Hosn Exhibition to the public. The exhibition offers visitors a journey through the story behind Abu Dhabi, as well as the history of the region surrounding Qasr Al Hosn, and highlights the restoration and conservation development project that includes Qasr Al Hosn and its surrounding area. The Qasr Al Hosn master plan was launched on Monday by Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and it is expected to be completed by 2018.
