Spent 3 days in RAK and had a chance to visit the museum. Entrance fee was 5 AED and an extra 20AED (if I remember it right) if you want to do the clay pot. Interesting things on display as many others have said. This fort turned museum should not be missed when visiting RAK for the first time.

From start to finish, this is a truly unique and special experience and a fantastic introduction to the culture and heritage of Ras Al Khaimah (or should we say Julfar!).

Housed in the original Old Fort of Ras Al Khaimah, it was also the residence of the Royal Family until the 1960s - giving you a unique insight into various facets of life in the Emirate.

Our favourite room housed traditional Emirati jewellery, each piece was impressive but what made this exhibition stand out was the personal stories of the people who had gifted these pieces to the museum to share with us all.

Thank you to our lovely local Emirati guide for sharing the history and heritage of Ras Al Khaimah with us, it’s a memory we will treasure.

Fascinating small, local museum in a fort that used to serve as the residence of the rulers. Lots of historical artifacts and details. The local guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. I am glad that this museum was on my RAK tour.

It was well worth a visit despite the heat. The staff were friendly and helpful.
Most of the exhibit areas were air conditioned, a relief as the outside temperature was 40+C.

It was extremely hot outside and so the cool was more than welcome. Parking is available just at the entrance. The entry fee is only 5 aed. The space and artifacts are well maintained. The ticketchecker was more than helpful telling us what else to see and visit.

There isn't much to see in the museum mostly from the ruins. The display and the explanations are done well. The space is well organised so that you do a complete round getting in and out of the lovely wooden doors.

Some sections had been closed off for renovation. The fort and the upper view are good for a one time visit. We had small kids with us and they enjoyed looking at the displays and taking pics with the wooden boats.

At the entrance they offer free guiding tours (and they are free for real, they don’t accept any tip at the end) with a local.

The flavour of the visit changes radically when accompanied by the stories about the place and what each corner of what used to be the emir’s palace was meant for.

It was surprising that pearl diving was very common in history of Ras Al Khaimah. The museum is not big but good to pay a visit and try to learn the heritage of the locations I visit.

It's a small one, we can see old things and learn RAK history. If you climb to the top you will get a good view
