Lonely Planet review for Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum
Sheikh Zayed’s residence from 1937 to 1966 has been rebooted as the Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum. You can step inside the majlis (meeting room) where the ruler received visitors, see the curtained canopied bed he shared with his wife, and snap a photo of the Land Rover he used to visit the desert Bedu. Walls of faded photographs of old Al-Ain show how far the town has come in just a few decades.
