The oldest museum in the UAE, Al Ain Museum was established under the leadership of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in 1969 to chart the history of Al Ain from the Stone Age through to the foundation of the UAE. The museum houses artifacts recovered from the many archaeological sites scattered across the region, including flint tools and arrowheads dating to the sixth millennium BCE.

The Eastern or Sultan fort rests at the eastern edge of Al Ain Oasis and is one of the most important historic buildings in the region, associated with the increased influence of the ruling Al Nahyan family in Al Ain from the end of the nineteenth century onwards. The fort is a well-preserved mud-brick structure with towers at three of the corners and a gate in the southern façade built by the son of Sheikh Zayed the First, Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed, in 1910.
