The area
Neighbourhood: Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighbourhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.

Best museum in Dubai

No any doubt for giving 5/5 for Etihad museum

The museum was modern and full of necessary information and equipments to help you understand the history of UAE.

My most favourite thing fo Etihad museum is timing. They close late (8PM) which makes me feel comfortable to visit in the evening (to be honest weather during afternoon is too hot to go out)

If you are historical traveller or museum lover please dont miss this place!!!

Ps.it's quite difficult to find taxi back from there. Taxi application will be helpful for your transportation on the way back home

Awesome and peaceful! Worth a visit

My husband and I decided to check out the Etihad museum on our recent trip to Dubai. We had a great time - it’s quiet, peaceful and the architecture is beautiful. You can learn how the Emirates formed and the history of each ruler which is fascinating. They have a garden on the grounds. We wanted to check it out but the heat was too much in the middle of the day. They also have a great gift shop where we bought some books for family/friends plus a cafe. Highly recommend a visit!!

okay but felt it was missing a lot

So it told the history of 1968 to 1971 and the unification of the Emirates and its leaders. I was hoping it would tell more of the history of the Emirates before and about the people of the country. The building was beautiful but I would only suggest it if you had nothing else to do in Dubai.

In the meantime, you can visit AlShindagha Museum to learn about the fascinating past as it highlights Dubai’s shared heritage with the region and wider world.

Amazing history especially of the UK-Emirates relations and evolution. Sadly empty , a damning indictment of the modern tourist.

Historically important and Architecturally breath taking

Probably the most impressive piece of architectural design I’ve ever seen. The history, space and serene environment is one of the nicest experiences you can have in a busy world.

5 Star Feeling at the Etihad Museum
Mar 2020
Visit was prior to pandemic and with the upcoming National Day 2020, it made me recall the visit to Etihad Museum earlier in the year, which was so clean and modern that it can make you feel like entering a 5 Star Hotel rather than visiting a museum. It has exhibition halls and interactive data provider that allows you to learn more about Dubai and its success to gain independence. Be fascinated with the old trinkets of our beloved UAE Leaders across the time. All I can say is that this is a good place to reminisce the good old times of UAE.

This review is about Etihad Museum located at Jumeirah Al Mina Road. No RTA parking for this location, but they have their own parking, for some its free others are charged. The location cant be changed as in this place where everything begun and UAE history was made. the building is super clean and nice to walk through corridors and its own sections. Its of 2 levels with 1 restaurant. The entrance is not free, please check the fee on your arrival and its as per age group, schools, student, visitor ..ect. Architecture is modern with Interesting content for some of us. You can set at the theater and watch long video about UAE. The video is informative on UAE’s history. Hardly spotted any staff or got help from them, however a friend took good care of us showing us the place there is little Library with a private garden felt like a journey to a far sanctuary. It’s a great place for a visitor and for those with great interest to history and cutlers.

Amazing Experience
Nov 2019
Etihad Museum gives you some real insight into the history and heritage of Dubai. It is very interesting museum very modern and very interactive. Moreover, this museum is very interesting to understand the creation of Emirates; of course it is not an old country. We highly recommend it to learn about UAE modern history. Thanks.
