Discover some of the quirkier machines from the history of automobiles at Emirates National Auto Museum, H. H. Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan's private collection of vehicles. The grand pyramid-shaped main building displays some 200 vehicles manufactured primarily in the late 20th century--many of them customized in accordance to the sheikh's wishes. With onboard refrigerators, golf tee-offs, and extravagant paint jobs, the vehicles here are testament to one man's singular taste and wealth.

  • This place was one of those that again had been hyped up prior to my visit. Unlike Ferrari World, it definitely exceeded my expectations. Just about every brand is represented here. As a lover of Merc...  more »

  • This collection of cars and trucks is comprehensive and over the top. Housed under one very large roof you'll find many rare and also pretty common cars, European and American. Outside there's a rathe...  more »

  • 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.

Where to stay in Abu Dhabi

One of the most expensive cities in the world, Abu Dhabi is famous for providing an unparalleled level of luxury. The modern development of Yas Island offers some of the priciest options in the city. Abu Dhabi doesn't really do hostels, but you can find some less expensive hotels in side streets less frequented by foreign visitors. Head away from the sea to find lower rates, or consider the areas south and east of the airport for simple rooms with basic amenities.
