It is a great place to visit for the whole family and is especially worth a visit if you are staying in Al Ain. Finally, another popular attraction to visit is Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum. Here visitors are free to explore the museum on their own but a guide is said by many to be particularly helpful and insightful as you can often learn about more details that aren’t always explained in the exhibits.
