A Visit to Emirates National Auto Museum

If you are someone who loves cars, especially historic ones, then this museum is for you! While in United Arab Emirates, don’t hesitate to visit and explore its vast collection of rare and luxurious cars. I loved it and strongly recommend it to fellow car enthusiasts!

During my trip to Dubai, I asked my brother to take me to this museum. Luckily, he hadn’t been there himself, so it was also an interesting experience for him. The next day, we set off for the museum. At the time, I didn’t anticipate writing a blog post about it, so I didn’t take many photos, but I’ll attach whatever I could find on my phone to this article. Here is some brief information about the museum:

 



Here we go...


The car museum, shaped like a pyramid, can be found in Al Dhafra, just a short 45-minute drive from Abu Dhabi city. It boasts a collection of over 200 cars belonging to His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, including off-road vehicles, classic American cars, and the Sheikh's iconic Mercedes rainbow collection. Fans of the BBC television programme Top Gear may spot some familiar vehicles among them.



The car that has earned a place in the Guinness Book of Records


One particularly noteworthy exhibit is a car that has secured a place in the Guinness Book of Records: The largest motorized model car, an oversized replica of a Willy Jeep at a scale of 4 to 1. Crafted by His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan (UAE), it was measured at the PYRAMID museum of cars in Abu Dhabi, UAE, on November 3, 2010. Notably, visitors can also marvel at an 1885 steam-powered Mercedes.


The museum welcomes visitors every day from 9 AM to 5 PM. At the time of writing this article (March 16, 2024) tickets cost AED 50 (approximately 14 USD), and children under 10 enter for free.
