Where old and new worlds meet

Dubai Museum and Al Fahidi Fort

Al Fahidi Fort was built around 1799, and has served in its time as a palace, garrison and prison. It is believed to be the oldest majestic architectural work in Dubai.

Originally created to defend Dubai against attacks from the sea, it is a colourful and evocative destination. Life-size figures and audiovisual effects vividly depict everyday life in the days before oil discovery changed the landscape of the country.
