  • Interesting buildings. Unfortunately something little to see. The buildings look though, but after 20 minutes it has seen it all, because the rooms are almost all empty.

  • I was very disappointed, most rooms are closed or empty. No comparison with other old Fords, there you can see much more.

  • Not much to see.Ticket of 5 Dhs should not be charged as per the practice at other heritage areas in Dubai and Sharjah. It is better to put on sale some souvenirs.  more »

  • A Simple and unique Museum with ancient Arabic architecture.... Loved the ambiance.... Not much exhibits but we learn how rich is the history of this great nation.... You can spend 2-3 Hours in the museum if you are on a leisure day.... Not much crowded also.... Don't Miss out the Wind Tower....
  • As a place it’s really nice, beautiful and tidy, and the government is taking care of it will, if you are that guy who loves archaeological things this is not the correct place for you, but if you love antiques, this is a wonderful place to visit and highly recommended for sure.
  • For 5 dirhams entrance fee, you get to see the history of Ras Al Khaima and have an overview of the life in the past. Discovering how they have lived the life before made us appreciate the life we have now. The museum is not that big but it's worth a visit. You can find antequities, ancient vases, fishing and hunting tools and many more. Bring your kids so they become exposed to our ancient history!
  • Really interesting exhibits and the old Palace it is housed in is also interesting. Views from the lookout towers to the see and across the city
  • If you like archeology then this is a good place .If you like history then get a ticket in dubai museum which is much much better
