The National Museum of Ras Al-Khaimah, set in an imposing 18th-century fort built of stone and gypsum, and with a wonderful wind tower, was the residence of the Qawassim rulers until the 1970s.
The thoughtfully curated collection includes exhibits on the area's natural history, archaeology, ethnography and the Qawassim tribe. Highlights include intricately patterned Iron-Age soft stone vessels, 18th-century terracotta urns and other splendid artifacts from Julfar, the biggest port in the UAE from the 13th until the 18th century, and Shamal.
