Women's Museum Dubai Emirati Women Photography Tour
Women’s Museum
This museum is worth a visit. The UAE is often portrayed as a patriarchal society; however, the Women’s Museum is proof that this isn’t the case. This Museum praises the accomplishments of influential women who helped to shape the UAE and the region in every regard, such as in business, art, education, politics, fashion and their role as the backbone of the society itself. This museum is also the only one of its kind in the Middle East.
Dubai Museums
Dubai Museum
The Al Fahidi Fort was built back in 1787 as a fort of defence and the premises of the monarch. Since then, it has turned into a museum highlighting the history of Dubai and its original heritage. Although this is not the Hindi Template, we highly suggest checking this out. For 3AED only, this museum will answer all your questions regarding Pearl Diving, Dhow making, the traditional architecture of Dubai, early gold trade and the economy’s transition to oil aviation and a global trading hub.
Coffee Museum Dubai Best Cafe Arabic Coffee
Coffee Museum
Coffee junkies this place is for you! Become a coffee connoisseur who would forever be too good for a cup of Starbucks after experiencing all the regional and international coffees at this Museum. Find out about the history of Arabic, Turkish, Ethiopian, Japanese Kenyan and even Jamaican beans, while comfortably seated in the museum’s cosy Majilis. Beyond the beans, you can also learn about the brew. This museum will teach you all about brewing the best cup for your Monday morning blues, or for the Middle Easterners—Sunday morning blues. Not a coffee fan? That’s okay because this destination’s cosy, tranquil atmosphere and traditional fusion-style architecture is pleasing for anyone.
Etihad Museum
Etihad Museum
Etihad Museum, a magnificently constructed, architectural masterpiece, allows us to discover the contemporary history of the UAE. Exhibiting the development from 1968 to 1974 through photos, films and more. The importance of this building lays on its historic site. Union House was where the Emirates federations unification documents were signed on 2nd December 1971 and are here within Etihad Museums property. Adjacent to the Museum is the 2nd December Street. We have a dedicated tour, check it out!
