    All such neat illusions. Mohand was patient and friendly as he showed us how to look at each illusion. So cool that we can take pix and video of the illusions. Incredible how they look so different on camera than in person. Such a friendly, helpful staff. Thanks, Mohand!

    It's a fun way to spend around 1.5 hours of your time. Really cool illusions, as well as insta moments and puzzles with great photo opportunities with your family or friends.

    This is a nice small museum and only costs 10 Durhams to enter. It includes free coffee and dates. Lots of antiques and some explanations of the history of coffee, such as the first coffee houses, Japan making the first instant coffee and Nestle making the first freeze dried coffee. Nice and cool inside so a good break from the heat, definitely worth a visit for anyone who likes coffee.

    Good place, barely anybody in there, so you can have it all to yourself. The exhibit contains some very interesting personal objects of important Emirati women, lots of info about women's role in the UAE. The second floor has walls filled with poems (amazing!). The place has great energy. The lady at the entrance is also a great guide and she can answer many questions.

    This place was recommended to me by the concierge at the hotel that I stayed. The name is actually a bit misleading since this is not a museum but a store for souvenirs and art in a warehouse style building. I was interested to purchase an Arabian Lamp that I saw during a previous visit to Dubai.
    This establishment had plenty of options available and Basheer was very helpful and patient to review all the different options with me.
    The building is located in an industrial estate and only the main offices are air conditioned. The products seem to be of very good quality. I am not certain if it is very good value in comparison to more touristic locations but the wide range is certainly a plus. I would also recommend negotiating over the price

    One of the oldest Islamic currency of Al Madina Munawara on this world. This coin is very precious especially for Muslims and it is very rare in this world. This coin is more than 1400 year old and this coin was used for the trade and buying or selling of products during time of Sahaba Karam..This unique coin of Madina was used in the Khalafat of Hazarat Abu Bakar saddique.



    Kalma Mubrik is written clearly on one side of coin along with names of Khulafa-e- Rashideen in Arabic language. On other side of coin there is picture of Al Masjid-e- Nabwi and word “Madina” in embossed form.



    Features and Benefits of this coin:

    1) More than 1400 years old coin

    2) This coin was used as currency during the earliest stage of arrival of Islam. It was used during the time of Khulafa-e-Rashideen.

    3) Master piece of ancient Islamic art and calligraphy.

    4) This coin is lucky coin containing blessings and barakat of Allah which I really feel always whenever it remains with me.

    5) One of the most precious and very rare coin on this world.

    6) This coin belongs to Holy land of Madina

    7) Only Muslims can realize the importance and worth of this coin.

    I have a rare islamic coin which is more than 1450 years old. You can clearly see "13 Hijri" word on coin. There is Kalma on it and also 4 Khulfas Names. I Want to sale it, but only people who can pay sufficient amount for this precious thing

    Gallery 27 is definitely by far the best gallery I have visited. Their artists that they work with are extremely talented and they all utilise a variety of techniques to present amazing art pieces with mixtures of different styles and textures. The gallery's style of pop art is exceptionally unique and makes it stand out from all the other galleries in Dubai. I highly recommend visiting here and indulging yourself in this wonderful experience! :)

    At first I wasn't very keen on visiting the museum. But once I was in I was a different world. We learned a lot about the falcons.

    I was a bit apprehensive about this one since most of my friends had no idea what it was all about but I am glad I went for it. A very different experience altogether, definitely worth a visit I would say.

    I recently visited what I believed to be the Camel Museum in Dubai, but unfortunately, I discovered that the location was incorrect. Despite the mix-up, I would like to share my positive impressions of the museum I did find.

    The museum I stumbled upon showcased a fascinating collection of camel-related artifacts and provided insightful information about the historical and cultural significance of camels in the region. The exhibits were well-presented, and I was able to learn about the importance of camels in Bedouin life, their role in transportation and trade, and their adaptations to the desert environment.

    Although I cannot provide an accurate review of the Camel Museum in Dubai, the museum I inadvertently visited was a pleasant surprise. It provided an educational and enjoyable experience, highlighting the rich heritage of the Arabian Peninsula and its close connection to camels.

    I would recommend contacting the local tourism authorities or doing further research to find the correct location for the Camel Museum in Dubai, as I believe it would offer an even more comprehensive and authentic exploration of this fascinating aspect of Emirati culture.

    We accidentally reached police museum as it is not part of any package tour or one can't found out such type of tourist place as who wants to visit police but it is museum we get in to let's see what we can find and we can asked tourists to know about it. Here we found history of their weapon and how police force come in action to protect their country.
