This museum was visited by my family and found many interesting artifacts of the region. Some were interesting and some were simply boring. There is a really nice collection of old rifles. It is worth a trip to see one time.

The museum is not very big, but it is impressive. The collection of photos was impressive, it puts the development of each emirate into perspective. I suggest everyone should visit.

The displays are a little primitive and rustic...but for many people it will explain in easy terms what the UAE was like before and the history and people behind it.
