“Lovely and educational”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

I love museums here. They have free admission and one can learn so much about the culture and the people...these are great for field trips and for entertaining out of town guests.

“Heritage!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I really liked the way that they take care about heritage and I enjoyed a lot to know about Sheikh Zayed's Family! They are real proud about the Father and they talk about Him with a mix of tender and respect, that touched me a lot! He was a real Father for all Emirati people!

“Flashback”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

One gets a real feel of how people used to live. The rooms are kept in their authentic state. The furniture is somewhat fake, it is from India but it does not give a disadvantage to the place.

“How local rulers used to live”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Fascinating place built in a traditional way of protecting architecturally against the heat (not with aircon). The late Sheikh's 1950s (?) Landrover is parked in one yard. You can see family quarters and receptions, fruit gardens, a small pleasure lake, and the family tree of the ruling family. It is a very down to earth sort of place with great character.
