Dubai Museum Tavel Guide
Dubai Museum (متحف دبي) is the main museum in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Located opposite the Grand Mosque, this low-key museum explores Dubai’s history, culture and traditions. The exhibits are housed in 1799 Al-Fahidi Fort, considered the oldest building in Dubai and once the seat of government and residence of Dubai’s rulers.
The museum was opened by the ruler of Dubai in 1971, with the aim of presenting the traditional way of life in the Emirate of Dubai. It includes local antiquities as well as artifacts from African and Asian countries that traded with Dubai. It also includes several dioramas showing life in the emirate before the advent of oil, in addition to artifacts from recent discoveries as old as 3000 B. C.
