Really similar to all the museums in the Emirates- old houses full of artefacts from the forgotten years which actually weren't all that long ago! I can't remember if it was free or a small fee. When we visited we were the only ones there and we took some great pics. Toilets are beautifully and weirdly super clean and nice!

An interesting building, around an open courtyard, which gives a good flavour of the area and the culture. The contents are arranged in a rather old-fashioned way, but if you persvere there is a lot of interest, and some of the historical items are good.

Lovely venue but needs upkeep. It was only 5aed so we didn't mind paying but after entering there are no staff to answer questions. Most rooms were locked and some unsafe aspects.

Rooms in the old fort are full of history of the city. The fort Was the home of the ruler. After the visit take a walk to the sea front and wander round the local shops.

Very nice museum! It`s located in old ford, when lochal kings (Sceikhs) lived in the past. It`s told about the life style of arab inhabitants before oil was found and country become rich. There are a lot of pictures and items of perl fisherman and beduins.

This could easily become a popular attraction if collection is improved. Very nice building with a big courtyard and trees. We expected to see bit of recent history about RAK and governing family but nothing mentioned!

Not the biggest museum but with a lack of places to go in RAK we took a look. Interesting but small collections in nice building to explore. We were glad we went even though we have seen similar things in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

Before a week I decided to go to Ras Al Khaimah. To see a part of previous history. It is useful to learn particular facts from a history of a country, where you intend spent several years. And of that which started really to bother of its heritage only about 40 years before. Of course, it is a small building... More
