Its a Car lovers dream place. Now this is what you call passion for vehicles. Rainbow Sheikh really shows it. The array of vehicles there is amazing, right from the worlds largest Dodge and Jeep to a merc with 7kgs of gold. The origin of name "Rainbow Sheikh" is displayed in the right hand side of the museum, 7 different... More

Great place for someone that likes motors. This place has some of the biggest cars/trucks in the world. The Rainbow sheikhs collection of Mercedes are amazing. His colours will blow you away. The museum is about 40 minutes out of Abu Dhabi. You will see the pyramid way before you reach the place. A very nice place to visit.

This place is amazing for car lovers. Before entering the museum you will see a huge land Rover defender which is about 2 story high. Once you enter the museum you will be amazed by the amount of cars there, they have all the cars in the world from old to new. This place is a must to visit

Can't miss the huge house on wheels at the entrance of the pyramid-shaped museum! Makes for a fun day out with kids though the location is very remote. We drove to it on our way back from Sir Baniyas Island to Dubai! Amazing collection of vintage and modified cars!

This museum is set in the midst of the desert and contains many vehicles which have been gathered over a number of years in the UAE and surrounding countries. The layout is not brilliant and many cars are not even cleaned after being dropped off a transporter. The huge scale caravans (one in the shape of the globe) are amazing... More

If you are interested in cars, this is definitely for you. We had noticed the sign boards along the roadside on our numerous trips to Liwa, but it was only once we saw the museum featured on Top Gear UK that we decided to stop over and take a look. The monster Jeep was what caught our attention. Unfortunately we... More

Lots of beautiful cars from the 1920's through to 2009. A very eclectic collections - from gorgeous Mercedes "Pagoda" through to a... More
