A Visit At Dubai Museum

Blog #003 Dubai Museum

One summer afternoon with 40 plus degrees heat outside, (no one can stop us) we go for some walking tour around Al Fahidi Area with my Kumares (they are my friends since collage) we’re all Dubai based as an OFW’s, but we don’t have a chance to see each other because of a different schedule and day-offs.

We start our trail from green line Metro Station take Burjuman to Al Fahidi Metro Station just on stop away.

History: Dubai Museum is the main museum in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is located in the Al Fahidi Fort , built in 1787 and is the oldest existing building in Dubai.

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. When entering, one can see the fort constructed and the various displays that go along with it. From the fort, there is a path to the galleries, which display the general culture of the land, especially in the 1800s. It includes local antiques 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 BC.

Its authentic atmosphere draws crowds who enjoy Levantine and Emirati classics like lamb kebabs, seafood and citrus-splashed salads, and always finds them staying for the view.
