“Well Maintained Museum”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

This museum is well maintained because it also houses some government offices. It costs 5 AED to enter. You can climb to a lookout tower and get a view of the city and the sea. There are some empty rooms to explore as well as rooms with pictures, artifacts and information. We have visited a number of the museums in the U.A.E. and this one had information that was written by a native English speaker. The museum could probably use some updates but it was interesting to see.

“Small but informative”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

One needs some sense of guidance to understand the displays here. There are many interesting artifacts in this little museum but people need to read up a bit about the history of RAK to appreciate the worth. This is a small museum and won't take more than an hour or so to be explored. One must still visit it nevertheless.

“clean and nice”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

I was surprised with the information presented there and the display of archeological finding... who would know that some items where 6000years old!
But mostly I was amazed with the clean bathrooms :)

“Past integrated in present”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

This is not a big museum, but it offers valuable information about the way of life in this region, during the centuries. The freshly renovated, well organized, pleasant building inspires the visitor to the best understanding of the exhibits. I've met here kind and helpful people, and a place where the past is naturally integrated in the present.
