Qasr al Muwaiji Reviews

Nice combination of new architecture for the exhibition building and the restored old Fort. The exhibition is well designed and I found the visit to the rooms inside the tower very interesting as it shows that the current ruler grew up in humble desert life. A big contrast to the modern city that Al Ain has become. Entrance is free and there is ample parking space in front of the Fort.
Fantastic little attraction to spend some time. Great facilities and the exhibition is excellent. Really showcases the UAE's ruler's lifestyle and culture. Open all morning till 7 pm. Get a few breathtaking pics you'll never forget. Fabulous, fantastic! Simply stunning! The fort has been preserved so well that is hard to believe that the ruler of this country spent his childhood here. I highly recommend this small and sweet attraction to everyone.
