History and heritage of the Arabian peninsula
In a city so geared towards the future, discovering its origins takes a little time and planning. There is only one museum, though it is surprisingly good. Beyond that, you’re best off seeking out some of the preserved buildings and heritage centres scattered throughout the older quarters of town. Most of these are situated near the Creek, the body of water around which the early settlements were all built. This is where you’ll find the ‘real’ Dubai museums.
