Well kept and well curated the Al Ain National Museum - one of the older museums in the country, gives visitors a very informative and concise educational experience on the history of the country. Contrary to the notion that UAE is all about modernity and...More

The oldest museum in the UAE, it tracks the history of Al Ain through a series of interesting displays covering various aspects of local life featuring lifelike human models. Zeroing in on the Bedu people who settled the area, one can easily visualize their lives...More

4 or 5 rooms of ornaments and models of people. Cheap, but not much to see. Everything in Arabic and English. Cool interior.

Not bad little museum as far as the local UAE history ones go. The best part are the finds from the local Hili Archaeological Park. Small, but relatively well marked in English.

It costs about 80 cents to go into this museum and it will take about 45 minutes to view all of the exhibits. They have a nice collection of artifacts collected from the area. It's nice to see some of these ancient pieces.
