To see at Fujairah Museum

The small museum, whose infography does not seem to have been refreshed since its opening, remains one of the most consistent in the country on this theme. The small red stone building has two cannons placed on either side of its front door, and is located at the bottom of an area with parking lots and a large lawn, with a miniature reproduction of Fujairah Fort in the middle. At the ticket counter, many flyers of the tourist office can be taken away, and a small souvenir shop sells some local handicrafts and products. An L-shaped hallway is devoted to ethnography, highlighting the diversity of the populations living in the region. The opportunity to discover weapons, utensils, costumes and local folklore as well as the main activities: agriculture, fishing and pottery. Two large halls with imposing hanging chandeliers are devoted to archeology and cover an earlier period beginning 3000 BC. Bronze jewelry, coins, and pottery remains can be seen there. Highlight of the visit, a U-shaped tomb dating back to 2000 BC, transferred inside the museum.
