We were very sorry that we found out about this museum only on our last day in Dubai, and we could not devote more than 2-3 hours. This museum is a hidden gem, as described previously, very UNDER PROMOTED as noted previously, and it is a great pity that it was empty....the tech is amazing, the content is amazing, the staff is very helpful, and you get to learn a lot about UAE and the Emirati culture and history. We would recommend to first time visitors, to put this museum at the top of their list. They will not be disappointed!!
We were in the Heritage area by the mouth of the Dubai Creek and were visiting the “old” sights that were under construction. Some of the galleries were open and then came upon this rather nice looking house. We tried to enter but it was closed and it was only 4:30 pm? Needless to say we didn’t get to visit the interior but the setting of the house was awesome.
