  • This is amazing and once in a lifetime experience. I was here during the national day in UAE and what an amazing experience.

  • The oldest museum in the UAE, it tracks the history of Al Ain through a series of interesting displays covering various aspects of local life featuring lifelike human models. Zeroing in on the Bedu people who settled the area, one can easily visualize their lives and homes. Weapons, jewellery, pots, farming and cooking equipment are also displayed.
