The Al Ain National Museum is the perfect destination for the culture seeker. If you wish to know more about Arabian culture and know about how the communities were formed, how the social development occurred and what the basis behinds the traditions and customs of a typical Arab community is do pay this place is a visit.

Several artefacts belonging to the Bedouins that travelled to this land are displayed. The main section features the secrets behind the ethnic traditions and ways of life of the Arabs and is rich in history. Several objects like pots and pans, jewellery and other objects of daily use from the Hili gardens have been preserved in this place, each telling a story.

Al Ain National Museum, Abu Dhabi Reviews

  • A place worth visiting... By name of palace I was expecting to be a magnificent building... but its a very simple building... free from traditional luxuries... but person living here have build up the whole country and brought glory to his country and today people love him as they love their father. Very simple, decent building, well maintained, with a wonderful view of city, fountain, traditional dates trees.. A room inside has the family tree of nahyan family I really enjoyed the visit here... it was really amazing to imagine that a king living in such a simple but decent palace has taken the whole country to height of success and glory.

  • A very worth visiting indeed.. great set up and a true great experience.. the only downside is the weather so in summer be aware of what time ur going to be there.. best visited at winter

  • Al Ain National Museum-The entrance fee is AED 3 per adult and AED 1 for kids under 10 years of age. The museum, the oldest in the UAE, is located next to the Eastern Fort (or Sultan Fort). It is on the eastern side of the Al Ain Oasis, the largest oasis in Al Ain. It was built by the former UAE President, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The museum was inaugurated by Sheikh Tahnoun bin Mohammed Al Nahyan, the Ruler's Representative in the Eastern Region, on 2 November 1971. The museum has two main sections on ethnographic and archaeological aspects of the country, especially around Al Ain. It includes finds from the Bronze Age tombs at the Hili Archaeological Park on the outskirts of Al Ain.

  • One of the best museums in Al Ain that exhibits artefacts that dates back to stone age. Lots of pottery from the region that are of high historic significance. You would need at least 2 hours to see all. Entrance fee is a nominal 3 dhirhams.

  • Quaint little museum attached to a small fort. Lots of antiquities from the country on show. It's 3 AED per adult for a visit, maybe it should have been free. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is no taxi line. Getting a taxi means a walk to the nearest main road across a car park.
