A visit to The National Museum of Ras Al Khaimah will allow you to experience an interesting insight into the history and traditions of the region, as it exhibits historical, ethnographical and archaeological material relating to the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.
The artifacts and collections exhibited there were partly donated by members of the ruling Quwasim family and residents of Ras Al Khaimah. Archaeological excavations, surveys and various scientific research projects undertaken by the Department of Antiquities and Museums have provided further material and significant information about the culture and the traditions of the area.
This museum has once served as the residence of the ruling Quwasim family until the late Ruler, H.H. Sheikh Saqr Bin Mohammed al-Qasimi, moved to a modern building in Mamoura. Later, the residence became a police headquarters and a prison, before it was finally converted into the National Museum in 1987.
