i loved the drive out there, loved the unusual building, loved the cars, the old DC10 out the back, but the best thing is the sheer excentricity of the place. Oversized Jeeps (as seen on Top Gear) Make sure you buy a fruit smoothie from the refreshment centre, will blow anything you get from Boost Juice out of the water,... More

I agree fantastic collection of vehicles. Displayed some what at random. With no explanatory material apart from the name of the vehicle. We were let out the back lot where there is a 707 airliner slowly decaying in the heat & sand & another Guinness record , a 4:1 working willy jeep. Some may say WHY !others why not! As... More

We stopped by here in our way back from Qasr al Sarab. I have heard that some people call the guy who collected these cars the "Rainbow Sheikh". This was a VERY impressive collection. There must be over 1,000 cars! They had cars there I haven't seen since I was a kid and some I've never seen at all. Car... More

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!
