It was a bit of a drive from Abu Dhabi and this museum is in the middle of no where but worth the drive. It ha huge collection of amazing cars and there is a plane in the middle of desert and also a world's biggest jeep. Overall the trip to museum was amazing and absolutely enjoyed it.

We had been there during National holidays. Its very nice place to see, varieties of cars under one roof, well maintained. Visitors can't resist to take their own photo under the huge Dodge truck, Jeep and a Merc on a giant wheels. Automobile lovers must visit. Check on : www.enam.ae/ Open all days between 9.00 - 18.00 hrs. Entry fees... More

I was surprised to see the collection and the types of car they have.Nice one time experience. Bit outside of the city and there is an entry fee of AED 50 to the attraction. Child under the age of 10 enters free.

It's out of the way so we finally knocked this off our list on our way to the Moreeb Dune in Liwa. I'm glad we put it on our list as there are things here you will never see anywhere else: The Dodge. Some of these cars (and campers) look like they would fit in perfectly at Burning Man. I'm... More

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

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
