“Water: H2O = Life" water exhibition, organized in cooperation with the American Museum of Natural History, offers visitors first-hand information about the power of water and its importance in nature and our daily lives, while shedding light on the challenges we faced for the sustainable management of this vital, but limited, resource.
Using interactive and three-dimensional environments, and through more than 90 subjects and models, the exhibition reviews the multi-cultural aspects of water, including the role it played in the establishment of civilizations.
The displayed detailed models and sculptures address the issues of water quality and availability, and what communities and ecosystems around the world face in this field.
In addition, the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage issued a number of illustrated folktales about water from the UAE heritage in both Arabic and English. These publications, available for free download on the website, target children and youth and are used to instill cultural values and remind people about the hardships their past generations endured due to the scarcity of water.
