This creative initiative is run by the Abu Dhabi Women's Association as a showcase for local arts and crafts. The small museum within is the chance to examine and learn about local artists' handiwork. There is also a shop on site.

The round buildings near the museum are workshops where female artists display distinctive Arabian oils, handmade souvenirs, incense, local dress, silver thread work, and weaving. You should remove your shoes before entering each hut, and ask for photography permission.

You can get a simple henna design painted on your hand, which will last about two weeks.

Opening Times:
Sunday to Thursday 7am-3pm
Where:
Women's Association Complex, Karama St, Al Mushrif (near the Immigration Office and the Royal Stables)
Telephone:
