Highly recommended. Learned a lot about Emirati culture.

We were a little late as arrived via metro and taxi. Taxi driver unsure of location even though we had address in english and Arabic (driver may have been from a different ethnic background?). Would be good if clear instruction how to get to the cultural centre via metro and walking... thanks.
