Situated in Umm Al-Quwain Fort, once home to the ruling family, the museum holds artefacts from nearby excavations at Mowaihat and Ed-Dur. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ed-Dur, overlooking Al Beidha Lake, is one of the largest archaeological sites in the UAE, and is listed among the most important lost cities of Arabia. The fort itself was built in 1768 by Sheikh Rashid Bin Majid Al Mualla, and continued to be the home of the ruling family until the 1960s. You will find exhibits showcasing the history of the royal family and Umm Al-Quwain, as well as ship building and fishing.
