  • A slice of historical Dubai; now closed
    I visited the Al Ahmadiya school, which is located in the heart of Deira not too far from the more famous Gold and Spice Souks. The school was converted into a heritage building, showing how traditional schools used to be. A central courtyard was surrounded by a two-storey building, with classrooms on both floors. The place was rather simple and unassuming in its layout. It is worth a visit only if one is deeply interested in the traditional education system (now not visible), else q visit to the Dubai Museum and the Bastakiya area are sufficient. This place is currently closed for renovations and hopefully, its new avatar will be worth it.

    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.
