Nestled in the Al-Fahidi Fort, this magnificent museum of Dubai was built in 1787 and is the oldest building in the Emirate. Restored in the year 1971 by the ruler of Dubai and then extensively renovated in 1995, today this beautiful architecture houses the city's heritage and many important historical events. While the main aim of the museum is to present the traditional way of life in the Emirate of Dubai, it also showcases fascinating old maps of the Emirates and Dubai explaining the giant expansion of the region after the oil boom.
The exhibits in the museum vary from many traditional boats and a palm-leaf house to Emirati wind-tower. Various galleries in the complex display the general culture of the land mainly emphasizing the 1800s. Emirati musical instruments, plethora of artifacts exchanged from African and Asian countries and the 3,000-4,000-year-old graves at Al Qusais archaeological site will baffle you with its past.
