Dubai’s museum

The museum's entrance

I was very impressed with the Dubai Museum on our visit last week. It was very fascinating to see how with the small amount of actual culture this city has how they managed to come up with a top notch exhibit, definitely the best museum I have seen in the Middle East.

If you are planning a visit to Dubai anytime soon, make sure to pay this place a visit. It’s located in the monumental Fahidi Fort, right in the middle of the city with modern buildings built all around it. One thing I recommend is the visual exhibit of the development of Dubai, detailing its history from when it is sole industry was pearl diving right up through its position as a world business and tourist destination.

  1. I’m in complete agreement with you here baby. The museum was very nice. It was air-conditioned (a real plus over the first half of our hot little bus ride), which was a welcome respite on our tour. The displays were top-notch and I dare say interesting — surprising considering how little actually went on here.

    Dubai grew from mostly nothing and most of it in the last decade. It is really remarkable. You really don’t get the full drama of that change until you see from whence it all came. This place really is worth an hour or two of your time when making a Dubai visit.
