The Al Ain Palace Museum which is also known as the Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum is an excellent cultural destination in Abu Dhabi. Al Ain which used to be an important oasis in the Arabian desert now houses a variety of cultural landmarks, the museum being one of them.
This building which used to be the residence of Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyam has now been instated as a museum by converting the majlis (meeting rooms) into exhibits. Several articles, ornaments, jewellery, artefacs as well as some beautiful oil paintings make up the objects on display. There is also the replica of a Land Rover used by the Sheikh. Another notable article is the display of a typical Arabian tent used in the earlier days. The space has also been modified to suit the needs of an Art Gallery. All in all, this place is another cultural destination in the UAE.

Authentic and very nice place, staff is very forthcoming, even the military guards where friendly enough to take pictures with one, really lovely
"Must visit" place. Gorgeous Museum with excellent exhibits. director of Museum is a very nice person, very well educated and with big sense for humor. You will learn a lot about Arab History and especially about Royal family. You will get a real touch of past times.
Birth place the man himself self. Not much to read or do. But good to see how they lived back then
It's a very nice historical building. Very hot in the summer, but the rooms are air conditioned. You can go just about everywhere in the complex. It's pretty big, take at least one hour to go through it.
Amazing place with the history of Sheikh Zayed
