The air condition is too cold. It's convenient to visitors to make a hand card to let us know how many pavilion areas there are and where they are.

The booking was excellent. Quick confirmation with good price. The attraction was nice but signage wasn't fantastic. Wasted some time trying to find it as the museum was quite scattered.

It is a very good museum. The Emirati staffs who are working in the museum guided us the entire visit. We couldn't finish all the houses as the weather was very hot outside and there are more than 20 houses to visit. Each house has a very interesting theme. I will revisit in winter months ago.

Explore & Learn About With Access to All 21 Houses in the Al Shindagha Museum

Your ticket will give you access to the Al Shindagha Museum and all of its operating houses. These houses, a total of 21, highlight the stories of Emirati culture. Learn about the humble beginnings of this metropolis to its gradual rise, especially under the rule of His Highness Saeed bin Maktoum Al Maktoum, the former ruler of Dubai as you explore The Al Maktoum Residence. ​Al Maktoum Residence​ is surprising, full of historical information and human stories that bring forth the royal family’s characters to life. Besides this, the other houses also beautifully portray the social, religious, traditional, and economic journey of the nation’s proud Emirati culture.

The Traditional Craft House

The houses in this grand museum suit the liking of visitors across a broad spectrum. For instance, lovers of art and craft can treat themselves to a visit to the Traditional Craft House. Here you will find handicrafts and evidence of time-honed skills for making pottery, cooking ware, fabrics, and jewelry using only traditional materials. The best example of this is how every part of the date palm, called the Tree of Life was used to curate beautiful ingenious objects.

The Perfume House

This house was intriguing because it was also the former home of the late Sheikha Shaikha bint Saeed bin Maktoum Al Maktoum, a famous perfume maker, and the aunt to ’s current ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. This House bears witness to the long-standing role of perfume-making in Emirati culture. Other houses like Beauty and Adornment, Traditional Jewelry, Traditional Healthcare, Community Hall, and the Children’s House, all reflect the many different shades of Dubai and its rich heritage.

A Fascinating Multimedia Experience of the Creek

Get a deeper insight into ’s history and development. Feel as if you are setting sail across the centuries to a time when’s present society was just beginning to take shape on the shimmering waters of its creek. Enjoy a state-of-the-art multimedia experience inside the immersive cinema experience of the very place that bore witness to international trade. A sensory experience that narrates the universal tale of the power of the human spirit to build a successful city by taking wisdom from the past.
