about dubai museum

Al Fahidi Fort lies in the old quarters of the city, known as Bur Dubai. The Dubai Museum is almost like a time machine, an escape from the modern day reality which transports into the royalty of the past and brings in terms with its luxurious and multi-dimensional aspects about history, culture and traditions, all this within an hour. It is an experience in its own right. With a hugely carved wooden door which leads through the various wooden instruments and decorations used in the era gone by, leading to the main gallery where is a breathtaking collection is on display.

The museum was opened by the ruler of Dubai in 1971, with the aim of presenting the cultural beliefs and lifestyle of the locals in life in Dubai. It includes local antiquities as well as artifacts from African and Asian countries that were traded with Dubai. It also includes several dioramas showing life in the emirate before the advent of oil.

It gives you a whole lot of information on the Emirati people, their culture & lifestyle. The light & sound here on weekends is awesome.
