  • What a pity that this museum is so little visited. It has everything to please, it is modern, high-tech, extremely interesting and very beautiful. A good time for those who want to better understand the construction of the United Arab Emirates.

  • Very nice place and beautiful design. Too much if history information about the country and it's past. You can find bus route from the RTA website and plan your trip. Taxi available and parking available too. You can see the photos uploaded for this place and understand how good this place to visit and you can see the available activities and plan your trip. I hope you all have a great time here
  • Very great experience, very high technology is used in this Museum. You might not recognize it once you reach, because it's all underground!, except the traditional gathering rooms of diplomatic visitors. You will also see the flag area where first union picture of all Emirates rulers took place.
  • Impressive building and inspiring design. The museum content requires a little bit of preparation about the History of the UAE, but it tells really well the journey from Independence to the Union. Touching and Thoughtful.
  • It's an amazing museum, you will get to know the history of Emirates. I would suggest you to produce your college ID card which will give you student discount. P.s. there are some pretty high tech movie presentation which one would enjoy if they are into technology or Emirates history!
  • Great to visit, we had short time available and here we only spent just over an hour. The top floor small gallery is free to visit as it is on same level as restaurant.
