An interesting museum, located in the former residence of the Emirs of this small emirate. Gives a good view of life in the UAE from older times, before all the large buildings and glitz. And I recommend visitors of the UAE to visit the smaller emirates, and not just Dubai / Abu Dhabi.

I specially came from Abu Dhabi after a night shift on my only day off to visit this museum and I have absolutely no regrets. The museum turned out to be very interesting and covers all the points that may be interesting about the history of Ajman. Although the museum is regional, it is much more interesting than some of the state ones I have visited in other countries. It was very interesting to “interact” with the museum, open doors, touch screens, look at fishes. Interaction always makes a museum more interesting. I liked the section about the traditional souk the most, because as soon as you open the door, you immediately hear the real noise of the souk and the smell of spices and you really feel like you are in the souk. Entrance is only 5 dirhams and do not regret this money and visit the museum, it's worth it!

A fantastic step back in time to experience life in Ajman for years gone by. Extremely educational, very interesting and highly recommended. Lots of the displays are well thought out and some are also immersive.

Lots of air conditioned spaces here. Some steps so wouldn’t be entirely suitable for those with limited mobility.

An excellent experience and unbelievable value for money.

Ajman Fort, built of stone, coral and mudbrick in the center of Ajman city, is the oldest building in the emirate. The date of foundation of the fort is not documented (it is believed to be the end of the XVIII century), but in 1822 the ubiquitous British documented that Ajman had one of the best harbors in this part of the Persian Gulf and was a small town with the only one fortified building - the ruler's house, that is this very fort. Without going into the history of Ajman, it should be noted that since the beginning of the 19th century, the rulers of Ajman, the Al-Bukhari family from the Al-Naim tribe, have been housed in the fortress.
In 1967, Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, one of the founding fathers of the United Arab Emirates, who ruled Ajman since 1928, moved his residence to another building, and the fort was transferred to the emirate's police department, which housed it until 1978.
In the 80s of the last century, the restoration of the fort began, after that the Ajman Museum, the main tourist and historical attraction of the emirate, was located in the fortress.
The museum is excellent: interesting and varied expositions, a successful combination of "live" exhibits with interactive ones, including ethnographic ones, which cover the entire period of the emirate's history.
There is a very curious collection of documents, including the oldest in Ajman Holy Book of the Koran, as well as a copy of the "Perpetual Peace Treaty" dated May 4, 1853, concluded by Ajman with Britain, according to which the emirate, among other coastal emirates, actually came under the protectorate of the British crown. But this is another story...
It is also necessary to mention that there is a barjeel (برجيل) or wind tower in the fort of Ajman, which is considered the oldest in the United Arab Emirates.
The cost of the entrance ticket - 5 AED.

Of all the old fort museums I visited while in the UAE, this one had the best exhibits -- both of old artifacts, and recreations of scenes. Lots of old history there. For 5 dirhams, it is not expensive to enter. I recommend a visit.

What a brilliant little museum. Lovely exhibits. No guides or anyone to talk to but you do get a good feel of the history. Spent much longer here than we thought we would. Highly recommend!

Well worth a visit, but leave yourself enough time to see and hear everything, probably a couple of hours. Highly informative with good interactive displays.
