Al Ain Palace Museum - Review

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.

  • "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.

  • The Palace of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was built in 1937.The original structure comprised a private residence for the ruler and his family within a complex of courtyards. It was converted into a museum in 1998 and opened to the public in 2001, now this palace become best tourist attraction of Al Ain. Building materials were used, including clay, adobe and plaster stones, as well as palm tree elements for roofing rooms, ceilings, doors and windows. The use of teak was later introduced in the renovation of the buildings. Entrance fee: Free Parking space and tourist guide services available.
