The Dubai Museum is located near the Dubai River. It's a comprehensive museum. It opened in 1971. Located in the Castle of Fahidi, it was built in 1787. The former palace, fortress and coastal fortress is the oldest building in Dubai. Walking into the museum is like entering the Time Tunnel. From the museum's open-air exhibition, you can see the model houses of the ancient Arabs, including the earliest wind towers. The indoor exhibition area, located at the bottom of the castle, is an antique market, an art gallery with traditional Arab features, including bronzes from ancient tombs with a history of 3-4,000 years. It's hard to imagine that Dubai has undergone such a dramatic change in just a few decades, from a shabby fishing village to an international metropolis in the 21st century, because of the discovery of oil. It's worth slowly appreciating.
The Dubai Museum is not free, but tickets are really cheap, 3 dirhams per person. After entering, there are some cultural relics and historical exhibitions on the ground, such as the wooden boats and traditional houses in those underdeveloped years. ~Then there will be a small room leading to the underground, and there will be another world underground. Through various kinds of false and real scenes, we will review the history of Dubai. ~Then we need Amway, if we want to buy some souvenirs to go back. As a gift, Dubai Museum souvenir stores can also be scoured out ~the quality and price are better than the stalls near the gold market!
Witnessing the development of Dubai from its original to the present decades, the real development process from a small fishing village to the world's most luxurious metropolis has only experienced nearly 30 years of changes, which can be described as earth-shaking knowledge.
The Dubai Museum is not big. The upper floors are mainly boats. After that, we go to the underground floors to see some of the living life of the former Dubais. In fact, Dubai's history is very short, about 200 years, basically put down the camel and drive Mercedes-Benz. Since the discovery of oil, there has also been a rich flow of oil.
United Arab Emirates... On the banks of the Dubai River, the Dubai Museum witnesses Dubai's growth from a desert village to a world-class metropolis through trade. The artillery at the entrance of the museum and the big wooden boat with Arabic style are good scenes for photography!
The Dubai Museum is a must-see attraction for all visitors from all over the world to Dubai. It is packed with tour groups and, of course, many Chinese. The admission ticket is 3 dirhams per person, equivalent to 5 yuan. In terms of local consumption level, it is also symbolic. The castle where the museum is located, built in 1798, is the oldest building in Dubai. It is not large in size. There is no majestic momentum of the National Museum. Only a huge fishing boat tells us that Dubai is not a long history. In fact, Dubai has been a small fishing village for thousands of years. Only Bedouins have lived a simple and even bitter life. The family arrangement of the courtyard chiefs can be described by the words "shabby" or even inferior to that of the village chiefs in rural China. Yes, it's quite different from Dubai, which is shining in our eyes. But this is the past of Dubai. Only through a strong contrast can we understand how hard it is to come by with its splendor. The life of the Bedouins in the main underground exhibition hall of the Dubai Museum is still more vivid and fragrant than that of the chieftain's "palace". The busy men in the small shops, the working women, the children attending classes, and the pearl-fishing workers lead us back to the simple life before Dubai discovered oil. Local children in Dubai, at least I have seen, are rarely dressed in traditional clothes, but white men and black women are still dressed in the same way as those in museums.
