I advise tourists to come and visit Bait AlNaboodah it is really lovely. Even though I’m local and I know the history of my country but it was really satisfying to enter the house and see how things used to be back then in the past. And they have a cute mini souvenir shop pass by it 👌🏽👌🏽

Bait Al Naboodah museum is among those located in the heart of Sharjah. The museum was actually the home of the famous pearl merchant, Al Naboodah, who built a fortune in the pearl trade in India and France. The home is one of the better examples of traditional Emirati architecture, with influences from the above-mentioned places too. The museum has a gallery on the life of the merchant, which was okish and another couple of galleries explaining the features. The ones that were worth seeing was the kitchen, bedroom and the summer room on the first floor as well as the courtyard. There was a temporary exhibition gallery on the ground floor, which wasn't anything great either. All in all, it was a mixed bag. I spent around 30 minutes here, which is sufficient to see the place. Entrance is AED 5.

The Bait Al Naboodah, affiliated with Sharjah Museums Authority umbrella is a certain scene stealer. An original coastal house in the heart of Sharjah (near Al Marjiha area), catering to a traditional Emirati ambience in a antique dwelling that has been refurbished & restored to not only promote an authentic setting but also enable the visitor engulf the true physical essence of this Arab style living. We were invited to a local breakfast that encompassed a quick powerpoint presentation, various simple classical dishes of this region, a demonstration of a popular milk dessert & a detailed brewing process of the exotic coffee beans or "qahwa" as it is famously named. Breakfast was delicious, delectable- the date pudding, a sure winner. List of the menu served is worth a watch in the pictures below. With a theatre, art center, a rain house, a tea house, a calligraphy centre & more, all within its vicinity, Bait Al Naboodah is a conscious effort to welcome, widen & import wisdom to one's worldly view on the United Arab Emirates. A must see for the local, expat & foreign visitor to this country.

It is surreal to see that only a few generations ago, this place was populated by nomads and tribes and how it has drastically changed. Worth a visit.
