    This is a nice museum in the heart of Deira in Old Dubai. Hard to find, but worth the effort. Interesting exhibits on the history of Dubai and life in the old city.

  • An unexpected cultural gem.
    I happened upon this gem of a museum while wandering around the Deira neighborhood of Dubai. I was more interested in learning about the history and culture of Dubai rather than seeing the glitz and glamour of it. This is a self-guided museum that gives one an account of the school in the early 1900s. It's not a must-see attraction, but if one wants to learn more about the history of the area, it is a nice way to pass an hour or so.

  • Great historical museum
    An interesting historical site in old part of the town. The two story building is a well preserved arab school from the beginning of the 20th century. The entrance is free and there are self explanatory placards all around. Don't miss to visit the museum after the touristy gold and spice souks, enjoy the silence and try to feel the atmosphere of the century old very authentic school.
