  • A place full of interesting and unique specimens. You must reserve a minimum of two hours to see everything if you like. 
  • Visited with a friend from Dubai. Easy day trip with car. Museum entrance is 50 AED/adults. Fantastic museum of nearly 300 cars, trucks, vans, and even some custom creations like the world's largest c...  more »
  • Interesting glimpse at the whims and fancies of the royal family. Not worth the drive itself, but definitely worth a stop if you're headed from Abu Dhabi to Liwa.

  • Great if ur a car buff, meh for family with a little kid, not so bad if you have kids over 6 years old. You can waste at least an hour checking out a crazy collection of automobiles fr Ford model T to army automated people movers. The place is tight, cars are behind a glass fence and are parked very close to one another.. That makes it impoaaibke to take pictures of the cars there. I have to say, the owner is a major car collector, you'll find amazing cars therr.
  • Nice collection of vintage cars. Big big vehicles I have ever seen. Doge with 2 bedroom hall n kitchen is classic. Rainbow Mercedes dont miss.
  • Unique experience. Worth the distance and entry fee. It can get a bit warm and humid inside as most of the A/C units remain switched off. Lighting inside the museum can be bettered to aid clicking good pictures.
  • One of the best Auto collection in UAE. But its really off the city and a good long drive..
  • There is a vast collection of off-road vehicles and classic American cars, the Sheikh's Mercedes rainbow collection and the world's largest truck. Some of the collection was featured in the BBC television programme Top Gear. Entry fee: AED 50 , Children under 10 enter for free
