The Etihad Museum is located in Dubai's trendy Jumeirah district.
In this modern building, the entire history of the country will appear before you. The museum consists of several pavilions where interactive storytelling takes place - screens and installations are used. While walking through the museum, you can watch films, photographs, and see contracts and important papers, the period from 1968 to 1974 is especially well illuminated.
Even if you are not particularly interested in the history of the UAE, come take a look at the building. The roof is made of white material and is curved in such a way that it resembles a sheet of paper. This design symbolizes the leaf of the constitution, which was signed on this very spot in 1971. The building has seven columns and this is no accident. They represent the seven emirates that have decided to become one country.
If you are interested in the history of the UAE, then also visit the Historic District Shindagha. There you will see houses lined with coral, restored fortresses, and the Village of pearl divers, where you can imagine what life was like for ordinary Arab peasants less than a hundred years ago.
The entrance ticket to the Etihad Museum costs about $7. The ticket price includes a guided tour in Russian.
The museum is open from 10.00 to 20.00
