Not as much advertised or promoted as other museums in UAE, it would be a shame to miss this attraction. This collection of archeological artifacts from digs around Al Ain and other areas in UAE is probably one of its kind in UAE - you...More

The museum contains the history of the Beduins. Better to get a guide or someone to explain and guide you through it

really interesting with true ancient artefacts but the audiovisual display poor and some gimmicks mixed in with truly great pieces

Great range of artefacts from the Bronze Age through to modern history. They have a large display showing items found in the local area detailing the evolution of civilisation through to gifts presented to the UAE from countries around the world well worth a visit

This is again Sheikh Zayed attempt to display and explore the archeology of the UAE. However, much of it is repetitive and the displays are a bit worn. Still worth dropping through.

Museum is not big but captures Al Ain's History. Lots of artifacts from the past are displayed. Kids may not enjoy as much as its not very interactive. Highlight is a piece of the moon.Admission price is very reasonable.

A must tour-around the museum is required! Perfect on its exhibits, the set-ups and how it was properly labelled for visitors and public knowledge! The antiques, art crafts and some personal things that belongs to Sheik Zayed's family were all-together interesting part of the exhibits!

Not too big but nicely set up with a nice exhibit. A good thing to visit together with the fort, oasis and other museums around.
