"Building by Famous Architects"
Ranked #2 in Abu Dhabi Must-Visit Museums
"Located in the Abu Dhabi National Museum, near the Sultan Castle, it is the oldest museum in the United Arab Emirates. The museum is divided into two major parts: ethnic and archaeological history, which allows visitors to follow the remains of the land that lived in the emirate 7,500 years ago, and to gain an overall understanding of the emirate's traditions and culture. The national history section of the museum shows the state before the oil discovery, most of which are very poor, and the collection of black and white photographs and stereotypes from the 1960s, displaying the tools and methods of the past, and the different lives of people during the day. The costume and jewellery section contains a 1780-year-old Maria Theresa coin, which is used as a currency and ornament in the Arabian Peninsula in the southeast. A necklace made of Maria Theresa coins, decorated with silver powder, is very popular with young women. The way farming is done and the equipment is shown. Fishing and beading, which have been around the Gulf for thousands of years, are also good reappearances. Traditional instruments and art are also on display, with two 17th-century verses and six Korans all decorated with ingenuity, a series of weapons and details of falcon activities. A small hall of the museum also exhibits gifts from home and abroad to Sheikh Zayed."
