From humble beginnings as a fishing village towards the rise to global prominence, Dubai has captured the imagination of the world luring thousands of foreigners to come making it their home.

The Shindagha Museum delights its visitors with a taste of Dubai, widely known for its openness and progressive thinking, Dubai’s culture and traditions are at the heart of The Shindagha Museum, where people from near and far can learn about our fascinating past.

The iconic Dubai Creek area is the home to our museum where visitors can experience the vibrant history of Dubai. It was developed as part of an initiative to transform the creek into a regional culture and traditional centre.

Shindagha Museum tells the universal tale of human innovation, resilience, and the desire for progress which shaped the Dubai of nowadays. We invite our visitors to explore the heritage submerging them into true Emirati culture and its origins. The museum also highlights Dubai’s shared heritage with the region and wider world.
