What people are saying:

We got here by a short taxi ride from the Dubai Museum because the bus does not have this stop. We last came in 2013, and even so, we are still fascinated by it. The house dates back to 1896 and is the official residence of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum, who reigned from 1912 to 1958, the ruler of Dubai at that time and the grandfather of the current chief. This house has now been incorporated into the Shindagha Museum. It is like a window. Through these beautiful buildings and huge wind towers, you can get a glimpse of Dubai's past. The house covers a large area and has many side halls. Visitors can enjoy a variety of artworks in these side halls, including coins, stamps, jewelry, lithographs, old documents and maps, as well as many Exhibits for centuries. We spent AED3 tickets, but if you have a Dubai Pass, you can visit for free.
