Al Ain National Museum Tours

24 Reviews
Situated on the edge of Al Ain Oasis in the same complex as the Sultan Bin Zayed Fort (Eastern Fort), the Al Ain National Museum serves to showcase the unique heritage and ancient history of this region.

Divided into three distinct sections – Archaeology, Ethnography, and Gifts – the museum's main themes explore the various aspects of UAE history and everyday life. The archaeology displays are particularly extensive, with artefacts dating back to the first millennium BC, including weapons, jewellery, pottery, and coins that were excavated from ancient tomb sites nearby. 

The ethnography galleries focus on the various aspects of the life of the Bedu desert dwellers, including exhibits on education, marriage, and farming, while the gift section refers to the gifts that Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan received throughout his lifetime. These include Bedouin jewellery, musical instruments, a silver dagger, and even a golden palm tree.
The Al Ain National Museum is located next to the Sultan (or Eastern) Fort on the eastern side of the Al Ain Oasis. There is a bus from Al Ghubaiba Bus Station in Dubai to Al Ain Bus Station, which is a good spot for accessing the region’s historical sites. The journey time from Dubai is around two hours.
