Dubai Museum



Al-Fahidi Fort is built in 1800 and it is the home to the elegant Dubai Museum, and is considered to be Dubaiís oldest building. The fort was initially used to defend the town from hostile native tribes. In different times this historical building has served as the seat of government, the residence of the ruler, warehouse and as a jail. The walls of this fort Al-Fahidi are made of coral and shell debris from the sea. These things are cemented together with the help of lime. Wooden poles help supporting the upper floor and the ceiling of the floor is made from palm fronds, plaster and mud. A huge, iron-studded door stands at the entrance, and the walls still bear the scars of battle. The towers also bear witness to the past battle. Today Dubai Museum is the centre of attraction for millions of people coming to this city.

The Dubai Museum was opened by the king of Dubai in 1971 with the sole aim to put on show a record of the traditional life of the Emirateís, though much of that is disappearing very fast. The remains of history stored in this area is collected and stored for public viewing. Apart from that, artifacts from many African and Asian countries are also on display that has remained the trading partners with the Emirate in its long commercial history.
Visitors at Dubai Museum can browse through numerous old maps of the Gulf and the Emirates at the very entrance of the Dubai Museum. The aerial photographs show Dubaiís vast urban expansion that took place between 1960 and 1980. A complete treasure trove await the visitors inside the Dubai Museum, a large section of which is devoted to musical instruments, with displays of drums, flutes, lyres, bagpipes made from goatskin and other instruments made in this region. These musical instruments are played in performances during the festivals.
