A new museum has opened in Ras Al Khaimah.

The main floor focuses on the history of pearling in the area, including a full sized 40 foot pearling boat. Information is very well presented.

The second floor is devoted to the cultured pearl industry. Not surprising, since the museum is owned by RAK Pearls Holding, LLC.

We wondered around a bit before finding the museum, so, if you are interested in checking it out for yourself, here is a map to help. The museum is open 10 am – 6 pm and costs 100 AED per person (which includes lunch/snack at the cafe).
