Dubai Museum is the main museum in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is located in the Al Fahidi Fort where we were staying nearby before so we gave it a try to see the place. It is of course a place where all historic items could be found. It presents the traditional way of life in the Emirate of Dubai. It's very interesting to see, it's free of charge but will cost you in different areas if you plan to participate in their activity or to buy some of their souvenirs.

Description:

Visit the Dubai Museum and encounter colourful dioramas and enlightening historic exhibits. Housed in the Al Fahidi Fort, this is the oldest existing building in the city, and is a must-visit for a taste of old Dubai.

Built in 1787, this fort was once a monarch base, a force of defence, a weapons arsenal and prison, before being renovated during the reign of Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum.

In 1971 – the same year the United Arab Emirates was formed – the fort reopened as Dubai Museum.

Showcasing Dubai’s history and its original heritage, you can get a glimpse of everyday life before the discovery of oil. The galleries recreate historic local houses, mosques, souks, date farms, desert and marine life.

You can also explore the rich history of pearl-diving in the region, including actual weights and scales used at the time. In fact, items dating as far back as 3000BC are on show, carefully preserved and cared for to ensure even more longevity.

See the vast difference between the old and modern Dubai, which developed over just a few years. You’ll find the Dubai Museum at the southern end of the Dubai Creek.
