The Na­tional Mu­seum of Ras Al Khaimah

Ras Al Khaimah Business Travel Guide - - BUSINESS TRAVEL -

“To­day the ‘Late Fort ‘ ex­hibits his­tor­i­cal, ethno­graph­i­cal and ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ma­te­rial re­lat­ing to the emi­rate of Ras Al Khaimah and pro­vides an in­ter­est­ing in­sight into the his­tory and tra­di­tions of this area... Like all other tra­di­tional houses in Ras Al Khaimah Old Town the ‘Late Fort’ was orig­i­nally con­structed from coral stone, a fos­sil build­ing ma­te­rial orig­i­nat­ing from the sea. Al­though be­ing fairly light­weight it pos­sesses ex­cel­lent in­su­la­tion qual­i­ties, keep­ing build­ings cool in sum­mer and warm in win­ter. To­day the mas­sive rec­tan­gu­lar tower rep­re­sents the old­est part of the ‘Late Fort’.”
