Description

A trip to Dubai is not complete without visiting the Dubai Museum, located in Al Fahidi Fort. Originally built as a defense against foreign invasion, it was later transformed into a museum and allows visitors to delve into the rich and unique heritage of the city. Exhibitions offer visitors an insight into desert life, depicting traditional Arab homes, mosques, fishing, pearl diving and trade. One of the highlights at the museum is an exhibit featuring artifacts from excavated graves in the Emirates from the 3rd millennium BCE.
