Located about an hour’s drive, south of Abu Dhabi, the Emirates National Auto Museum is sure to be of interest to all you car lovers and motor vehicle fanatics out there. Housing the private collection of H.H. Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, the museum offers a dazzling display of cars dating from the 1950s right down to the 1990s, each customised so as to capture the heart of ardent motor fan.
Upon arrival one would be able to marvel at the sight of its pyramid shaped building, yet again a feature of this astounding and one of a kind tourist attraction in Abu Dhabi. Some of the models have been kept in their original state while a portion of the collection has modified to suit the interests of the Sheikh himself. Should you be a fan of Mercedes, then the museum would be the perfect place in which to catch some of the finest models that come in a variety of colours. A series of 4 wheel drive vehicles are also on show for those of you who prefer a more robust look and feel to your vehicle. A range of European and American limousines too can be witnessed during your tour while sedans, minis, coupes and convertibles await your arrival. When searching for a hotel in Abu Dhabi to stay at, look no further than Anantara Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa, Abu Dhabi by Anantara which would serve you well on your travels and be an excellent base from where a tour to the museum could be arranged.
