  • For DHS 3.0-(0.75 €) entrance money you get here definitely value for money. In 4 rooms you get a very good idea of the history of the people who populated these deserts. There are finds exhibited an the stone age, the bronze age, the iron age etc. .. Especially the daily utensils and weapons are interesting. In the last Hall are the gifts showcased which authority figures of other countries brought with them when they visit the Emirates. The gift of the then King Juan Carlos of Spain is here though! Go and see for yourselves!
