“An enjoyable hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

I spent around an hour here walking around the museam and the gardens. There's not a lot of exhibits to see but walking around the buildings makes up for it

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Seeing the place where the royalty of Abu Dhabi once dwelled is interesting. The space inside is pleasant and largely green.

“A fascinating piece of the UAE's history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

A fascinating, educational, and informative look of the UAE's history and early leadership. Very pleasant and relaxing setting. I did the self-guided tour. Many excellent photo ops.

“A heritage site lacking in tourist appeal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

A very average display of Dubai heritage relics. Lacks appeal to both young and old. Whole place can be viewed in 30 minutes max.
A great location and exterior, could be much better utilised, providing interesting information on local culture, if more thought was put into it.

“Peaceful and attractive spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The Zayed museum does not have much in the way of exhibits--just a few odd pieces. But the structure itself offers an interesting glimpse into the culture and history. The gardens and grounds are attractive, and while one would not spend a lot of time there, it was an interesting and attractive place to spend a peaceful couple of hours.
