Ajman Museum 18th Century Fort in Ajman UAE

 The 18th-century fortress that was once Ajman's first line of defense is now the city's museum. The exhibits here focus on the traditional local lifestyle, with dioramas of typical day-to-day life, as well as an excellent gallery displaying archaeological finds from nearby sites that will be of major interest to history fans. There are also displays of documents, photos, and official manuscripts tracing Ajman's founding as an emirate.

 
As well as being the town's main stronghold, the fort was once used as the ruler's palace and later as the location for the city police station. The fort's major archaeological features are its two wind towers, two watch towers, and grand gateway now fronted by two cannons.
