These are pictures of Al Ain Museum. I had a great time despite my children being bored to death and driving me crazy. You will see pictures of old texts, such as Qurans and Hadith (written on skins), Pottery from the Hili tombs, antique Jewelry, pictures of what Al Ain looked like in just the 50's and 60's, artillery, money from different Khalifat, and gifts that were given from other countries to Sheik Zayed and donated to the museum. I took a picture of the label which stated which country gave the gift, then I tried to put the picture of the gift right afterward. Note the pic. of the bag that said for Womens cosmetics, I thought that was so 'a propos. Enjoy! View pictures as large as possible to get writing and detail if able use zoom
