    Good little museum, we visited one morning as part of a Dubai City tour we had booked. Quite small, but it provided an inside of how houses were in old Dubai in years gone by. We didn’t spend much time there but worth a visit if you’re passing.

    This museum is the first place I visited in Dubai. It's incredible. It gives me a full understanding of Dubai's culture and history, Ms. Xinyan Liu gave us a tour in the Perfume house. She is very professional, explained in details. We really enjoyed with her. Highly recommend this museum.

    Dubai Creek Heritage Village is a hidden gem nestled amidst the modern skyline of Dubai. Stepping into this cultural oasis feels like traveling back in time to the roots of Emirati heritage. The village offers a captivating glimpse into traditional Emirati life, with beautifully preserved buildings, bustling souks, and authentic cultural experiences. From exploring the historical exhibits to witnessing traditional crafts being practiced, every corner of the village is steeped in history and charm. The waterfront location adds to the ambiance, providing a picturesque backdrop for leisurely strolls along the creek. Whether you're a history enthusiast or simply seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, Dubai Creek Heritage Village offers a delightful journey into the rich tapestry of Emirati culture.

    This museum is a hidden gem! As you might imagine from the name it’s a wonderfully eclectic canter through the history and culture of the region, with exhibitions on pearls, manuscripts, literature and weaponry.
    Perhaps most strikingly, there are also very thoughtful and moving sections on both the Holocaust (some fascinating stories of Muslims helping escaping Jews) and the more recent Abrahamic Accords.
    An uplifting experience!

    We visited the museum today. On a very hot day the air con was a blessing whilst viewing artefacts. Not a huge museum but interesting and informative, it took us about 45mins. There is a gift shop but we didn't visit.

    Especially for those who remember the old Trucial States stamps -- issued in large quantities in decades past, a visit to the Philately museum in the Fahidi district is well worthwhile.
