Set in a tourist park in former Royal Grounds in Al Ain, alongside other museums and leisure facilities, is a little-known old car display packed with exquisite gems and oddball delights. The Al Ain Classic Car Museum was established on 2nd December 2009 by Rashid M Al-Tamini and houses about two-dozen classic cars dating from 1901 to 1980.
