We visited this attraction with our little 2 year old daughter. It was a stunning experience. The mosque is very beautiful and it is huge. There are also huge chandeliers in the rooms that are really beautiful.

We took the guided tour and timed our visit so we would see the Mosque in daylight, sunset, and dark. It is both fascinating and beautiful and a must visit when in Abu Dhabi

This is one of the best spots to see in the UAE. Check the website before going to a visit to make sure it's possible to visit it (unless you are Muslim and going for prayers)
