More displays and content is needed to make it worthwhile coming here A good try but it can be covered in under 20 minutes which is not good for someone who took the effort to go there specially

Nicely designed museum with a ticket of Dh.5/- per visitor. Majority of items on display are extracted from the seabed. Some old coins and weapons are also on display.

The museum is located in a traditional style building. I recommend the museum for the people who like the archeology and traditional exhibitions

Must visit...just to appreciate the historic perspective of this great Emirate. Artifacts are well presented in a number of rooms around a courtyard. Open on all days of the week including Fridays. AED 5 per person and the Family Ticket makes the entry even cheaper.
