Like other travelers, I was really impressed by this place. If you like history and you want to see how people lived in the past and to see other side of Dubai, this museum is a must see. Cheap entrance ticket, but so informative.

This is a wonderful museum and full of information, displays and traditional equipment. You must see the indoor displays - very enlightening. It's only 3 dhs to get in - they could charge more. Be warying of lots of tourish coaches!

Thought this was just going to be a small fort (which you can see when you approach) and not much more but once you go down into the galleries you experience the whole history of Dubai which we found very interesting. Took about an hour to walk around and cost less than 5 drms to get in - can't remember exactly how much...

We recently had a family trip to Dubai and we signed up with a tour group that brought us to places. One of it is the Dubai Museum. Museum is one way of knowing the city or country in detail. I enjoyed the journey this museum had brought me through. From Dubai before they discovered the "black gold" until today. After the museum tour, I'm able to understand the lifestyle in Dubai better. It's definitely worth it to take a tour here.

We were staying nearby so very easy for us to pop along and have a look. Cost around 60p to get in and well worth it if you are in the area.
Small museum stating dubais history set within a old fort, won't take you long to have a look round and its very cool inside, very good value for ££!
If you are hungry afterwards there is a brilliant indian restaurant opposite the exit - uni cafe - near the pizza place and arabian courtyard hotel, go to it if you get a chance, great value and very tasty!
