Dubai has come to be one of the best travel destinations, ideal for luxurious holidays and exotic adventures, from where visitors take back amazing memories. The city is modern in every way, well equipped technologically and in terms of infrastructure. Yet behind this modern and well developed city is a long history including various events that have helped mould it into the metropolis that it is today. A trip to the city would not be complete without experiencing the past, rich with the culture and heritage that exists even today. There is no where better to do so than at the Dubai Museum, an icon in the beautiful city.
There are a range of exhibits at the museum that depict various eras, from pre historic times to the more recent pre oil Dubai. Witness displays of the traditional architecture that was once seen all over the city, in the beautiful houses and mosques. Popular exhibits among visitors are the various artefacts found through excavations in several spots around, dating back to as far as the third millennium BC. Experience what life is like when living in the desert at the model desert house, set up outside. There are not only pieces that depict Dubai, but those from all over United Arab Emirates for visitors to admire. The array of things to see here is immense, and visitors cannot really say they have experienced the authenticity of Dubai without having stopped over here.
It is not only the exhibits that are impressive; the building the museum is housed in is also interesting and rich with history. One of the oldest buildings in the city, the Al Fahidi Fort which was first built in the late 1700’s has served many purposes, from a palace to a garrison and prison, before it was converted into a museum in 1971. To accommodate the rising need for more galleries, an extension was made in 1995. There is much to experience on site, and despite the never ending choice of modern attractions in the city, is an ideal place to visit.
Travellers planning to spend their stay in Dubai apartments are in for a treat as there are Dubai serviced apartments as luxurious as the city itself. Located in one of the best real estate areas is Ascott Park Place Dubai, where visitors will enjoy a range of amenities and fine comforts that are sure to exceed expectations.
