“Great Restoration but not much Explanation”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Interesting glimpse of family and Majlis life in the 1970's; tasteful restoration but needs a booklet for foreign visitors.

“Gem in the desert”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

A really interesting little museum giving visitors a glimpse into the past. The building itself is really quaint, peaceful and very picturesque. A number of rooms (sleeping, living etc) have been setup to give visitors an authentic insight of where Sheikh Zayed, the Founder of the UAE grew up.
Really worth a visit. Won't take you more than a couple of hours and is a great day out.

“Excellent little museum”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Really liked the ambience and in terms of cultural things to do in the UAE this is way up the top, didn't stay long but very much worth a visit.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Visited it and was fun for a short time. Shows the same lifestyle lived by their forefathers as in the Dubai Museum. Not open everyday so check out before you go. Could be Sunday or Monday.
