We visited this place last week. It was a good experience to see the old culture and practices. Since its a summer the fun is limited. But for other seasons one must go for this experience.

Dubai Museum is mainly wax figures that exhibit the life of the people before discovering oil, their professions, costumes, traditions and some real jewellery is displayed. It's a relatively small museum compared to many others. There is a souvenir shop if you are interested to...More
To be fair, we visited as part of a city tour so it was difficult to spend too much time admiring the displays. Might be better to attend when you have a few hours. Just up from Dubai Creek, so best to make an afternoon/evening...More

Dubai musuem was once a residence of the royal family. Musuem is very modern with nice presentation and videos. It shows how Dubai evolved from an pearl age to one of the most modern and smart cities in the world. Ticket is pretty reasonable and...More
After visiting the Souk Market we walked here because it was so close, about a 10-15 min. walk max. It really shows how far the country and culture has changed in the last 50-60 years. From the outside it doesn't look as big as it...More
