Visiting this museum by car, don't be intimidated by the barriers across the gate. Drive up to them and the security person will lift them to allow you in. Continue driving towards the back of the site and you'll find the exhibition building, with covered parking on the left.

It's free admission and turning left and working anti-clockwise you'll see a room themed on the UAE postal service with interesting objects and displays. The next room displays the history of oil exploration in Abu Dhabi. It's clear to see Sheikh Zayed's influence here.

Continuing into the large exhibition space, there are seats in front of a television which shows a video summarising the UAE's history. Three of the Sheikh's cars (a Mayback, a Mercedes and a Range Rover) are displayed together with gifts and awards presented to him plus stuffed animals, skins and hides and weapons. Completing the visit, there are two rooms devoted to the Abu Dhabi police.

Reading the display boards, it's fascinating to gain an insight into the mindset and values of the ruling family and the people of this fascinating country and the role of a remarkable leader.

I would like to give 5/5 unfortunately I would take 1* from them

There is nice to see history of UAE, mostly about sheikh Zayed. You can see alot of his stuffs and information.

Unfortunately 40% of information are Arabic (but still have some english) also the place is huge but only one building that you can visit (Exhibition hall)

I love the location and atmosphere. You can see the sea, beach and small pier over there. Water was totally clear and blue.

Recommended to come to visit around 12-1 PM because the weather was good for a nice photography.

Administration is free.

Personal car is better than public transportation because alot of parking available.

There is some interesting tipbit on the Abu Dhabi, Zayed life styles and artifice with their recent history. How a poor, weak country turned into a rich and strong one.

This place only needs 1 hour. It is pretty small and if you are new to this region, you may like to take pictures. For me, I did not find it very exciting. It is a good place just to visually see the history instead of reading about it in the papers. In fact, I can barely remember what is so special about this place. I gave it 3 stars because of parking.

Not visiting the Heritage Center would have kept a lot out of my UAE experience. Seeing how they showcased their past way of life increased my understanding and respect for the people of this land.

This place can be easily skipped. It is poorly planned and laid out with things like his perfume bottles on display.

We were shown round this very well thought out memorial by our excellent guide Aiblooshi Nasser who explained everything we needed to know and more
There was no cost involved and I would highly recommend visiting while visiting Abu Dhabi
