Museum & Center of the Navigator Ahmed bin Majid

The Museum of the Navigator Ahmed bin Majid is a semi-private collection of maritime items filling three rooms. Amongst other things you will find lots of corals, shells and shell mosaics together with some traditional fishing, diving and sailing items. There are also some traditional agricultural and household tools.
On the walls there are paintings depicting the battles with the British as well as photos showing several (ruins of) historic buildings in the emirate.
As the name already indicates, the museum is part of a society center. So you might find the people you meet there at least as interesting, as the items in the museum. And while the presentation in the museum might sometimes not be optimal, there is a very nice printed catalog available.

Opening hours are Saturday to Thursday 8:30 to 12:00 and 16:30 to 18:00. You might want to check for any changes by calling 07 228 8226.
