“A Beautiful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

A must see and it was quite an experience and eye opener. I have to give the UAE high fives for a beautiful,entertaining,educative out of this world experience. My second time in Dubai this May was quite a journey that I didn't want to end and I enjoyed it with my favorites persons my son and baby sister. Advice any visitor to Dubai to visit the museum.

“Alot to take in, insightful and interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

This national museum, is 3 dirhams to enter, most of which is underground.... a god send in hot weather, especially if you had children. It takes you through from the beginning of Dubai to present day, with lifesize scenes to illustrate the history it is portraying. It is my 2nd time in Dubai and Iam glad to have visited the museum to understand the life here.
