We passed the ENAM several times on our way to the Rub Al Khali desert from Abu Dhabi. From the road, you can see a huge jeep jutting out onto the highway, and a real aircraft parked in the desert behind the museum ..... it looked quite fascinating.
On our last trip, we got around to visiting the museum. It was fairly early in the morning and had not opened yet so while the watchman was getting his act together, we admired the gynomous globe - car, the mother of all caravans and an old model Mercedes stuck on bigger than truck tyres ... all in the parking lot. Another huge jeep was in the back, along with the aircraft. The aircraft is the Loch Fyne. I have no idea how it got itself stuck in the Abu Dhabi desert, but I recognised it in the Bollywood movie Hijack on TV last week!
All the above is free to see. To enter the museum hangar, you have to pay AED50. It is not really worth it unless you are an automobile enthusiast. The best vehicles are outside and can be seen for free. Inside are an assortment of bespoke vintage luxury cars. The piece de resistance is obviously the gargantuan sized Dodge pick up truck, absolutely and unashamedly larger than life. I found it a bit boring looking at the rest of the cars after a while. Men might find it more interesting I am sure.
This is fairly close to Abu Dhabi city, about a 45min drive. You can see it enroute to Hameem, Qasr Al Sarab or Liwa. The free exhibits are worth looking at once, especially the Globe, the jeep and the aircraft at the back.
A must see for auto enthusiasts.
