        The fortress had always been used as a stronghold for the Emirates political leadership as well as being a first defensive front line . A number of watchtowers around the fortress assist in providing security and protection for the Emirate .

       This outstanding and lofty historic sight is seen as a record of our ancestors' everlasting heritage . The decree issued by his  Highness Sheikh Humeid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi , Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ajman ,to transform the fortress into an integrated museum dedicated to the people of the United Arab Emirates, is seen as a kind gesture .

       The museum is designed to include monuments and conventional industry . In addition, the museum includes a  presentation of the social lifestyle and the traditional professions of the past . This, will in no doubt, enable present   generations to acknowledge and study their ancestor's past and sufferings to secure the necessities of life.
