  • This ancient Arabic style house dates back to 1890 and was originally owned by a prominent Prince who ran the mercantile traffic. Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Ahmed bin Dalmouk was the first to trade beads in the Emirates architectural style is that of the aristocratic residences with a large open courtyard protected by high walls and dirt inside a large hall to receive the guests decked with Persian rugs and rich soprammobil and many different rooms that are well appointed.

  • It is informative especially to get an idea of life in the UAE, with reconstructions and dioramas. Finally it seems, it was closed during the hours!

  • There are few historical places in Dubai hence, heritage house is a important place to visit to explore history. It is well maintained place. Just beside it, there is a Al Ahmadiya School. You must visit it too. It is old religious arabic school. So, both places must be visited to explore history. There is no fee for entry which is good thing otherwise, even one sip of water costs in Dubai.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
