The building Ajman National Museum was built in the late 18th century when it was a ruler’s palace. It represents one of the main tourist attractions in the City. It is also one of the most important historical forts and fortresses spread all over the country related to the early history of the Emirates. In the 70’s it was put under usage as a police station.
On 2 December 1971, Sheikh Rashid ibn Humayd Al Nuaimi joined the United Arab Emirates and this day and two weeks after it is the national holiday. That’s why unfortunately the Museum was closed for visitors when we came there on 7 December.
Admission 4 dhs ($1).

I can’t say that I saw a number of religious sites in Ajman as I saw in Sharjah. We have been told our guide that there was the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in every emirate. So we could see the Sheikh Zayed Mosque which is in Ajman. The rich architecture of the Sheikh Zayed mosque impressed us though from aside.
The mosque built for the Late Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi by his son and the current Ruler of Ajman, Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, is another landmark of the city.

Ajman has experienced massive development and a construction boom in recent years. Within Ajman city the gleaming new Etisalat Tower is an instant landmark.
The Etisalat Tower is designed in traditional mosque-style. One of the world's most distinctive skyscrapers, the Etisalat Tower is topped by a large sphere which many people liken to a "giant golf ball".

My daughter was a member of the Ajman Kempinski Hotel gym , so while she was working out, I would swim to my heart's content in the crystal- clear pool. When I wanted a change I would walk down the white sandy beach, 500 metres long, and have a dip in the sea.
The sun is very strong, even when overcast, and the white sand reflects the sun too, so slather on plenty of sun screen or you'll get burnt as I was.

This fascinating museum was opened in 1981 in a lovely old eighteenth century fort which served as the Ruler’s palace and office until 1970, when it became the main police station. Located in the town centre, the museum houses an interesting collection of archaeological artefacts, manuscripts, old weapons and reconstructions of traditional life.
Open from 9 a.m. to1 p.m., 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in winter and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in summer, Fridays 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Closed on Saturdays. During Ramadan, opening times are Sunday to Wednesday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
