Located in the 1787-built Al Fahidi Fort, the Dubai Museum is Dubaiís main museum. Opened in 1971 by the Dubai ruler, the museumís aim is to present the cultural life in the Emirate of Dubai to the public. African and Asian artifacts fill the museum and several dioramas showing emirate life before the discovery of oil. Recent discoveries have also uncovered artifacts as old as three thousand B.C.

Al Fahidi Fort was constructed in many stages. In 1799 the oldest tower was constructed and was believed to be Dubaiís oldest building. The fortís main purpose was to guard against town raids from neighboring tribes which arrived by land. It has also at one point served as a rulerís palace, as a prison and as a garrison. Renovated in 1970, it opened as Dubai Museum on May 12, 1971 by the Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Ad Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai at the time. More galleries were built in the museum in 1995.

Tourist attractions include the Desert Safari Dubai, the Seawings Dubai, Ibn Battuta Mall, The Tower of Arabs Burj Al Arab, Jumeira Beach and Park, Jumeirah Mosque, Ski Dubai and the Aquaventure Water Park.
