Find Treasure At The Dubai Museum
When you visit the Dubai Museum — housed in the Al Fahidi Fort which was built in 1787, the oldest existing building in the city — you’ll encounter colourful dioramas and exhibits that depict everyday life in the days before the discovery of oil. The museum, which was opened in 1971, features galleries that recreate historic Arab houses, mosques, Souks, date farms and desert and marine life. It also includes an exhibit on pearl diving, with sets of pearl merchants’ weights, scales and sieves. You can view artefacts from Africa and Asia, as well as local finds from several archaeological digs that date back to the third millennium BC.
