Etihad Antique Gallery is located next to Etihad Modern Art Gallery. There are relics from all over the world in the gallery. Devoted collectors may buy such rarities there which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. They possess impressive and substantial collections of coins and swords. The gallery is located in a villa in Al Bateen, and it is a home to extensive collections of Islamic, European, Arab and Middle-Eastern antiquities, artefacts and works of art. Firstly, the gallery was closed for public, but now it is open for everyone.
The gallery is connected to the neighbouring villa, Etihad Modern Art Gallery, that is proud of the collection with works by local artists. Exhibitions in both galleries not only aid the promotion of modern art, but also emphasize the significance of preserving the region’s past and history.
Etihad Antique Gallery has a collection of 1.500 antiquities, including 300 oriental paintings, from artists such as Rudolph Ernst, and oriental statues, from artists such as Franz Bergman and Louis Hottot. The collection also includes pottery, urns, 300 years old coffee cups and kettles, Turkish and Persian swords and other pieces of armor.
