Well maintained museum to visit and rich in history. The souvenir shop may be a bit costly but it is worth to get at least a memento. The surrounding area is also a must see place for everyone.

Dubai Museum takes you back in time how UAE has survived as desert city and developed into an ultra modern city. Take a sneak peek into the culture, history, science and everything from the past time. Fantastic place to visit. Spend a couple of hours.

It was fascinating to read about Old Dubai and its interesting history. Entry fees are reasonable and the respite from the heat is heavenly! The displays are not interactive but the information is clear and easy to understand. Highly recommended.

My wife loved seeing the old stuff that was present there. Dubai has a completely different story to tell if you visit museum.

Dubai is all about the modern and the future. You can spend days or weeks there focusing on nothing but futuristic architecture, shopping, spas and dining. I encourage everyone though to spend just an hour or two understanding its past. The museum is small and...More
