Dubai Museum – Love It Recommend It

LIRI-Season-2

Disappearing tombs, ancient civilizations where the worlds biggest clubs are today, fashion from 3000 b.c, divers who would risk their lives 50 times a day – some of the amazing things we saw here!

This week we went to Dubai Museum… Yes. The same one that is just 10 minutes from home. Can’t believe we’ve lived in this country FOR YEARS! And never been.

Best, most, awesome thing about the experience was that it cost us AED6!!!! 6. SIX! Six!!!! (Shock)

We LOVED the experience. Learned so, so much about the history of the lovely city we live in. Renewed respect for the Emarati community and all those who built this city from literally – NOTHING!

Look through the pictures and you’ll know why we Love it and Recommend it!

1894. That fateful year when Dubai became tax free…. And since then life for us has never been the same.

Dubai used to be 3km long and 1 km wide. That is as small as Meena Bazaar. Maybe smaller. Now terminal 3 is bigger than that!

The biggest question in this museum is – so is that person real or wood?
