Travel Back in Time

If you ever wondered what Dubai was like before the discovery of oil, this is a must-see on your travel plan. Housed within the Al Fahidi Fort that was once an arsenal and later on a prison, the Dubai Museum brings together a quaint mix of artefacts, natural history and dramatic vignettes from different walks of life to convey a vivid sense of bygone eras.

Visit with your family or a friend, or wander around on your own - there's enough and more to keep you intrigued. Not-to-miss are the sections on seafaring, shipbuilding and pearl diving. For true museum buffs, though, the archaeology section might well be the real find.
