“Updated Archaeology and 1960's Photos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

All very informative, if a little 'foxed'. Nice to see the ADNOC Video film of the Oasis history, Copper mining, Fort attack, and all the actors from 1980's covered in ketchup and playing 'dead'

“Excellent museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

The Al Ain Museum is small but filled with wonderful & varied objects.
I was particularly interested in the ancient pottery & artefacts found in the area.
The museum is next to the Eastern or Sultan Fort, and also next to Al Ain Oasis so you can see all in the one visit.
If you are interested in history, the museum is a must.

“Wonderful Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

This is one of several museums in town. They all have lots of information that tells us something about our town. The national museum has a lovely place for the children to experience life from long ago and to eat outside in a covered area. The museum also has lots of artifacts from the discoveries of the tombs made years ago.

“Nice place to go with family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

It may not be the greatest, but it sure is a place you must not miss. Good place to go with family and see the old things used by the Arabs years back.

Lady at the reception was very nice and hospitable.

“Great place to learn more about Islamic Culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

It was worth to visit the museum. There are many interesting displayed stuffs about Islamic culture and traditions. The ticket is very cheap. The stuffs working there are very friendly and helpful. You can buy the drinks from the machine at the entrance. Bring some coins with you for that!
