  • The photos on the wall gave me more insight into the past lives of the desert inhabitants as the exhibits.

  • Original maybe feels Dubai or the past a little Museum differs entirely from the images received from the modern city. Ordinary way is felt as the people of the household goods and deserts life time. I think after you go to the desert and also the different look and feel. One of the places in Dubai was coming.

  • Excellent place to visit. Cool atmosphere.
  • Small and nice, for those ppl who like historic things
  • An interesting museum with some interesting artefacts tracing the history of the local region. in desperate need of a makeover and updating.
  • The Al Ain Museum shows archeological and ethnographical exhibits from the Al Ain area. Most notable are several donations from the sheikh family and very interesting photos showing life in Al Ain during the last century. Entrance is 3 AED (Jan 2013). Plan 45-60 minutes.
  • Very interesting
