Visited here many, many times...was my go to place on a Friday, after worship and lunch. Would get there and roam around in the adjoining oasis, then visit the museum. This was a place to bring people visiting me in Al Ain too. Interesting photographs of the royal family and shows the transformation of the UAE from small town oasis to the mega-metropolis it is now. Great place to visit! Beautiful gardens and spaces.

Dated back to 5000 years with archaeological and ethnographic collection of bronze and iron ages depicting civilization, culture and tradition are worth watchable.

This museum will show you a glance of the history of both cities. Many of the displayed items are related to the old history of Al Ain and it reaches recent history.

We enjoyed learning about the history of the people of Al Ain. Very interesting, the story of the oasis. Very clean and easy to get around. The staff were friendly and helpful. A must see.

We visited here with a rental car from Abu Dhabi's AUH. The free Al Ain Nat Mus displays the history of Al Ain to include hundreds of artifacts(stone vessels, pottery, beads, etc) found at UNESCO's Hili Archaeological Park, a Bronze Age(3rd C BC) settlement/tombs surrounded by a lovely parkland.
UNESCO's Hili Oasis, which has been cultivated for 4000 years, is a maze of narrow lanes with gates to an interlace of canals.
All 3 sites are very worthwhile.

The museum is not very big, but it is impressive. The collection of photos was impressive, it puts the development of each emirate into perspective.
I suggest everyone should visit.

Though a small museum, it holds historic significance. The photographs from the 1960s seen in light of what has been achieved today are simply breathtaking. Of course there are artifacts used by rulers and the people but its the old photographs and the maps that enchant and stun you of the progress UAE made in such little time.

This is a small museum but extremely well laid out, with great customer service and very very clear descriptions in both Arabic and English. This museum was a breathe of fresh air after visiting other small museums without signage or descriptions. 1 hour should be sufficient to experience the museum but if you have more time you can take full advantage of the multimedia presentations along with topographic maps and storyboards of archaeological sights that have been excavated. A must see.

If you are visiting for the day, it's worth spending an hour here. Tells the story of Al Ain, which was a very important trading town. A half hour film, if somewhat dated, tells the story of its copper industry and how it was involved in many battles of occupation.
