The Palace took 150 million man hours to build and is part of the 380,000-square-metre Presidential Palace compound.
Sculptural composition 'Power Of Words' designed by local artist Mattar Bin Lahej in Qasr Al Watan.
The façade is constructed from white granite and limestone built to last hundreds of years with the colour white chosen as a symbol of purity and peace.
More than a traditional palace, Qasr Al Watan is an exquisitely crafted tribute to the region’s Arabian heritage and artistry.
The architectural and interior design echo the significance of the exhibits housed within its walls and the function of its most iconic rooms.
