Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum in Al Ain was founded in the palace of the former UAE President, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Sheikh Zayed had lived in the palace from 1937 to 1966. In 2001 the palace was converted into a museum featuring an art gallery and a royal family tree.

Sheikh Zayed is a legendary person in the Emirates, his portrait can be seen not only in government institutions but also in shopping malls and hotels. He is the founder of the United Arab Emirates.

Sheikh Zayed was married nine times, but according to Islam regulations he did not have more than 4 wives. He brought up 19 sons that now work in government or do business. One of his sons, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, is the President of the UAE since November 3, 2004. The tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa, was named after him.

Admission is free.
