The Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum is located in the historical district Al Shindagha on the shores of the Persian Gulf.
The sheikh's house was built in 1896 and, despite being called a palace, looks rather modest. It looks more like an ordinary rich house. But few people know about this museum, so here you will not meet crowds of people, which means you can properly consider everything. And then see even more at two nearby museums - the Ethnographic Heritage Village and the Diving Village, which tell about how Dubai lived before oil was found here. Plus, all these museums are located on the shore of the Persian Gulf, next to a beautiful promenade with cafes and restaurants where you can drink aromatic coffee or have a cheap meal with traditional dishes.
The museum has several halls displaying rare historical photographs that tell about the past, and collections of coins and stamps that belonged to the sheikh. One of the halls is dedicated to the traditional Arab craft - pearl fishing (but you can and should learn more about this in the free museum Pearl Divers Village), as well as furniture, carpets, and jewelry.
The museum is open every day.
The entrance ticket costs a little less than $1.
