  • Very nice experience not only for men. Interesting collection of cars, amazing caravans! We only missed more info about the car collections and their "history". The staff was polite, just watch out th...  more »
  • Quite far from Abu Dhabi, count 1 hour drive, stands a little in the middle of nowhere that pyramid in jail. Upon arriving, we're optimistic with the famous jeep scale 4, alas once inside, disappointment comes very quickly. The cars are exposed to each other with very little information (see no) and finally the tour is done in less than an hour.

  • Raharikkailla can afford to buy any of the garage. That way, when they may not have any use for them to be able to exhibit. Thus, the poor tourists can visit the small money against the appreciating the world's lowest prices.

  • Great destination for a week end. Amazing collection of cars. Unfortunately it is closed at the moment. UPDATE 01 JAN 2018: The museum reopened now, with a new gate. The small petrol station/shop in the front is gone, as well as the small coffee shop inside.
  • If you love cars it’s great place with a good collection of different models. Make sure you take cash as they don’t accept cards (nearest cash machine is in the ‘workers city’ 5 minute drive away and it’s surrounded in trash; it’s disgusting. No place for a women either, my husband had to go in and fetch cash from the atm). The auto museum though is a good visit for car enthusiasts
  • Totally worth it 👍 if you have some time in hand and you are an automobile enthusiast, this is the place to visit. Kudos to the team for getting all the master pieces under one roof. Museum is off the city limits, so bare in mind when you visit there with kids.
  • This place is a hidden jewel. It cost me 50 Durham to visit but the exhibits are extensive. It's an hour from Abu Dhabi in the middle of nowhere. It has some very unusual pieces.
  • It is quite a drive away from Abu Dhabi but.worth it if you have plans or activities to attend to in Al Dhafra Region. Very wide selections of cars that will surely grab your attention. From old to strange to unbelievable, all could be found here.
