Al Qattara Fort
The redeveloped Al Qattara Fort in Al Ain is now home to a brilliant arts centre and gallery. With aesthetically traditional exterior facades, the restored Al Qattara Arts Centre carefully maintains a blend of traditional architecture with state-of-the-art facilities. It offers hundreds of modern exhibits within its walls and includes classrooms for tutorial sessions – part of its mandate is to provide a venue where arts and culture can be studied, practised and developed by the entire UAE community.
The Centre has a dry studio for a variety of activities such as music classes and art crafting, a wet studio for drawing and painting, a fully-equipped pottery studio, a digital room suitable for photography and computer classes, a spacious calligraphy studio as well as an exhibition hall, cafe and library.
Opening times: Open Saturday to Thursday from 9am - 8pm and Friday from 4-8pm
