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.
You can visit first Al Fahidi Historical District.You will see some Artwork Galleries,Souvenir Shops, Restaurant and Museums.
From Al Fahidi Historial District a minute walk to reach Dubai Musuem
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.
Next to textile souk we go for a snack at Restaurant Bayt Al Wakeel houses a maritime museum and a heritage restaurant with an outdoor deck rising over the lively Dubai Creek. 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.
On the other side of the Creek is Gold Souk & Spice Souks just take an Abra ride for 1 dirham from Old Souq Station going to Deira Creek Side
While on walking tour don’t forget to hydrate yourself. You can see many cafeteria nearby that offers refreshing drink for a cheap price.For us we bought avocado shake for just 10 dirhams.
