From Abu Dhabi public bus depot, Al Ain is an affordable, easy, comfy 2-hour bus ride. Open hours are 8.30am-7.30pm Sat, Sun & Tue-Thu, 3-7.30pm. Monday closed. The Museum is within walking distance from Al Jahili Fort. Take the time to stroll around the Museum and soak up an interesting insight into Middle Eastern culture, Personally I like to stroll around sites freely with no time constraints, but if you're into tour guides and packages, you can find them online easily enough. There's no entry fee.

I was on my own so was a little wary but it was fine. On very hot days it may be best to avoid as there is no shelter from the sunshine. Was fascinating to see and glad I went.

This is a beautifully maintained Palace with lovely gardens and a series of formal and informal public rooms and private quarters. Visiting this Palace is a good adjunct to the Qasr Al Muwaiji. It has an easy flow for visitors to follow through galleried walkways, the family tree and portraits of the Al Nayhan family, the relatively modest living and guest quarters of Sheikh Zayed and Sheikha Fatima and their children, surrounded by private gardens and crystal clear falaj. With the date palms of the all important Al Ain Oasis behind it is a place of calm serenity away from the bustle of modern day Al Ain just outside the front gate. I particularly enjoyed taking time to sit quietly in a shady spot to enjoy the atmosphere and reflect on the history and culture of this place and its residents.

Beautiful place to see and experience how the leaders lived. Culture rich and informative. Even the kids enjoyed it. Takes about 2 hours depending on how fast you move.

Interesting to see where the royals lived before oil. The palace is nice and it gives you a pretty good idea of how things were laid out, but not a lot of descriptions of things.
