  • It is located in the middle of nowhere on the E65 road, and is distinguished from a distance because the building has great Egyptian pyramid. It is said that accommodates more than 200 cars, and the Museum was created with the private collection of Sheik Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan. All copies include the truck to scale the world's largest in the center of the pyramid, and its around the private el Sheikh Rainbow collection, many spectacular off-road cars, a large collection of classic American cars of Mercedes Benz. To finish off the bizarre collection, outside we find two Guinness record, on the one hand the largest in the world, and on the other motorhome Jeep driven 4-1, the world's largest scale. If you were to spend the weekend to the Liwa desert well worth, go by the way from Dubai seems too much, not in change from Abu Dhabi, is just 45 km away.

  • great place... once you get in!! lots to see and very wild and wakey... just like that old version of Top Gear... 1990"s 
  • A bit of trek to get there from Dubai but worth it. A good selection of vehicles including some military. Bit of a shame with the glass screens being so close to the cars as makes it a little difficul...  more »

  • 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
