  • One of the better museums here in the UAE, I've been to Dubai, Sharjah, and Abu Dhabi. It's not that big but a lot of interesting things to see one thing that stand out is the old TV screen they have there, playing a very old film and the film taught a lot about the history of UAE and I love history. Wish they could update the display though. Went here with the family and they are not as interested as I am, but if you are a curious then definitely visit this place.
  • Very nice place to see, many orchestras are held there! Cool place!
  • Get a feeling on how sheikh zayed used to live. Beautiful palace
  • Nice museum. Free entry. A look into the history of the ruling family.
  • One of the best museums in UAE. hats off
