In 1948, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, during his rule of the Eastern Region, ordered the construction of a watchtower to maintain security in Al Ain. The building comprises two floors plus a rooftop used for surveillance and observation. Since 2011, UNESCO listed Al Murabba Fort as one of the cultural sites of Al Ain, a World Heritage location. In November 1959, Abu Dhabi Police established a police station at Al Murabba Fort in Al Ain. It included twenty individuals affiliated with the Police and Public Security Department in Abu Dhabi, specialising in security matters. On the 3rd of May 1994, Sheikh Zayed announced the conversion of the old Al Ain Police Department building, “Al Murabba Fort,” into a permanent police museum. However, it was impractical to convert the fort into a museum. As a result, they chose the building next to it to house the display. The museum curators were keen to transfer the palm trunks recovered from the tower during its restoration to decorate the ceiling of the museum lobby. The Al Murabba Museum has become a cultural icon, housing a display outlining the history of security and policing. It details the history of Abu Dhabi police through the various phases. The museum comprises collectables, uniforms, equipment, and devices documenting the police history.
