What we do

Through our three key sectors: Tourism, Culture and National Library, we work extensively to regulate, support, develop and market Abu Dhabi’s tourism industry through a range of activities aimed at promoting and preserving the emirate’s distinctive heritage and culture.
Tourism
The Tourism sector is charged with supporting the evolution of Abu Dhabi into a world-class destination, in line with our commitment to conserving, promoting and leveraging Abu Dhabi’s heritage, culture and tourism assets.
Culture
Our organisation strives to preserve and promote the emirate’s rich cultural and historic heritage. By sharing Abu Dhabi’s unique legacy through a wide-ranging programme of cultural events, exhibitions and museums, we aim to present the emirate as an international cultural destination.
National Library
Established in 1981, the National Library is one of the UAE’s largest knowledge repositories and a vital resource for intellectuals, scholars and scientists. The National Library is responsible for the establishment of regional, community, children’s and mobile libraries.
