Uncover Ajman’s fascinating history at its museums, castles and forts, and experience Emirati culture by watching a camel race or exploring a souq.
Culture & Heritage

From sleepy fishing village to energetic modern city, Ajman’s transformation has been remarkable. And while many changes have taken place over the last half a century, the emirate has retained its rich cultural traditions and preserved its heritage.

In Ajman’s coastal city you can barter in the souqs, visit a dhow-building yard, explore a museum, witness the local passion for Arabian horses at a stud farm, or cheer one-humped Arabian camels to victory at a camel race.

Meanwhile, at the inland enclaves of Al Manama, east of Ajman, and Masfout, in the south of the UAE, you can explore castles and forts, and understand the essence of local life in laidback villages and towns.
