Historical Sites
A Visit to the Dubai museum is a must on every Dubai itinerary. Housed within the beautifully restored Al Fahidi Fort, which was erected around 1799 to defend the city against invasion, the museum's diverse collection of exhibits offers a fascinating insight into the rich history and cultural heritage.
Renovated in 1993 for use as museum, its colourful life size dioramas vividly depict everyday life in the days before the discovery of oil. Galleries recreate scenes from the Creek, traditional Arab houses, mosques, the souk, date farms and desert and marine life. One of the more spectacular exhibits portrays pearl diving, including sets of pearl merchants’ weights, scales and shieves. Also on display are artifacts from several excavations in the emirate, recovered from graves that date back to the third millennium B.C.

Al Ahmadiya School
In 1922 Sheikh Abdul Rahman bin Hafidth and teachers from Zubair School (Iraq) started teaching the subjects of Hadith, the prophet’s sayings, Koran explanation ‘Tafseer’, and Islamic law. Teaching took place on mats made from palm-tree leaves. Al-Ahmadiya School adopted religious teachings as a basis for its curriculum. The government of Dubai began subsidising the school in 1937. Sheikh Mana bin Rashid Al-Maktoum was appointed as the head of the education department and supervisor. In 1963 this building was closed and the school was moved to a new location to accommodate more students.
Al-Ahmadiya School has undergone three phases of construction:
The First Phase in 1912, The Second Phase in 1920, The Third Phase in 1922:
