Discover Dubai’s heritage and rich history at the best museums in the city. Established in 1971, the UAE is a young country with so much history yet to be discovered and understood with its modern counterpart today. Dubai showcases a wonderful mix of tradition and modernity like no other country. This emirate is a must visit destination for everyone in their lifetime, and especially those who wish to immerse themselves in the glorious harmony of religion and art and culture. Aside from history and local culture, fascinating traditions and wildlife are preserved in some of the best and modern museums around. A popular historical attraction is the Dubai Museum. It is the main museum and the oldest existing building in Dubai. The museum presents its visitors several dioramas showing life in the Emirate before the advent of oil.
