  • 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.

  • It's good educational trip we had. The children loved it. The tour to the oasis and museum was informative for me too. Bus tour is recommended and affordable.
  • The Al Ain National Museum, housed in the Sultan Bin Zayed Fort, does a good job of bringing the heritage, culture, and history of the United Arab Emirates alive. There is a particularly interesting ethnographic section reflecting the daily life of the region's people, with a reconstructed traditional majlis and exhibits of traditional garments and Bedouin jewelry. In the archaeological section are displays of local artifact discoveries that date back to the Bronze and Iron Ages, including pendants and an important coin collection. The main attraction of this section, though, are the exhibits from the nearby Hili Archaeological Park, including the restored Grand Hili tomb unearthed at the site. Address: Khalid bin Sultan Street, Al Ain
