There is no fee at the entrance. You can see a lot of human craft like pottery, metal,weapon, and so many things, mainly it's a prehistoric artifact. a real camel is there if you want you can take pictures. Amazing view of the Abu Dhabi Corniche as well. Lots of lovely gardens and palm trees to sit under to enjoy the shade. It's near Marina Mall. It took us a maximum of 1 hr to see and do everything mainly nice to see part of history. Some areas are under construction. The museum will close at 4 pm so if you are planning to visit, keep it in mind.
Our tour guide brought us here instead of the much more interesting Emirates Palace which I really wanted to see. No fee or security at entrance. Didn't bother with any museums because all of them were underwhelming and boring. Got to take a picture with and touch a real camel though! Amazing view of the Abu Dhabi Corniche as well. Lots of lovely gardens and palm trees to sit under to enjoy the shade. If you're at the Marina Mall you might as well check it out, but otherwise it's not worth your time.
