If you appreciate history and culture, plan in spending 1 to 1½ hours exploring this massive palace in its early years of hunting. It feels like going back into the innocent years when money had no meaning or purpose, when life was simple yet accommodated. My husband and I spent 1-1½ hours exploring each room, absorbing the lifestyle in a desert that became an Oasis because of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan. What you see today in the UAE, began with Sheikh Zayed , a very humble man, the one the Emirates greatly admired and finally call "The father of the UAE." Why? Because of his relationship with each tribe and the respect he earned from their tribal leaders, he united these tribes and with their support formed what is now The United Arab Emirates. He believed in the younger generation spending time with the older ones preserves the memories, he believed in Education for his people. I'm not an Emirate, I'm Polynesian, but I so admire the late Sheikh Zayed!

Well done preservation and demonstration of life of the Sheikh. Informative and beautiful grounds to wander. Special events are held and we were fortunate to return to attend an evening mock historical wedding with live camel and traditional dancing, prepartion and displays, authentic experience.
