Places like this Fahidi fort really take you back in time. The props there help you visualize the life when settlers started settling in Dubai. A good effort on part of the government and others to put this museum together and to give the tourists something to look forward to when they visit Dubai.
It's bigger on the inside than it looks and you get to learn more about the city. Find poo u how a dessert city has enough water for that many water features. The location in the old city is ideal while you're exploring the history and culture of Dubai far away from the malls and high rises
Wonderful relics, heritage, art and culture of Dubai saved in it's natural environment. You will be basically walking along narrow lanes surrounded by traditional old Arabic houses. They have a collection of traditional paintings, art work, shadow art, fashion accessories, dresses etc. There's also a small restaurant in a very mediaeval setting that serves Arabic tea. Worth taking a stroll in the evening.
A very memorable experience. Going through the history and life styles of the people and the astonishing development from the 1800s to the now is mind boggling. I'm really in awe of the visionary prince of Dubai.
I really enjoyed the market on the way from metro to the museum. Very authentic. The museum was great. Part of exposition is open air, the other part is under the fort. Lots of tourists though.
