Something for the history and culture lovers that visit Dubai, this museum is located in the old Al Fahidi Fort in Bur Dubai - one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. The fort was built in 1787 and has been home to the ruling family, a seat for the government, and a prison. It now shows visitors what the UAE and Dubai looked like before the oil boom and the vast expansion that followed after.
Outside in the courtyard of the Dubai Museum, you will be able to enjoy several traditional boats and a palm-leaf house with an Emirati wind tower. From musical instruments to old weapons, the Dubai Museum is a popular attraction for many tourists and is one of the most famous historical buildings in Dubai.
