  • Nothing special inside...but It is worth visiting for a quick stop. It is nice to see part of history.

  • I ve been there during my stopover in abu dhabi. The place is so poor and has no interesting things to check. Maybe a place to get rest at but could not recommend it as a priority to do in abu dhabi

  • Our tour guide brought us here instead of the much more interesting Emirates Palace which I really wanted to see. No fee or security at entrance. Didn't bother with any museums because all of them were underwhelming and boring. Got to take a picture with and touch a real camel though! Amazing view of the Abu Dhabi Corniche as well. Lots of lovely gardens and palm trees to sit under to enjoy the shade. If you're at the Marina Mall you might as well check it out, but otherwise it's not worth your time.
  • A total flop with exception of the museum, view and Location. The only place where you see some real history is a tiny museum. All over It’s very dirty. The greenery looks bad. Typical tourist gift shops with cheap Made in China stuff. Besides that I feel bad for the poor cats which eat the leftovers of the tourists, the service is awful, they say it’s traditional food but it’s just warmed continental catering stuff. Really not recommending. I wanted to give it a try but there is a lot to do better there… sadly
