One of them is Dubai Museum, which is located in the Al-Fahidi Fort built in the late 18th century for defending Dubai Creek.

A visit to the Al-Fahidi neighbourhood, also known as Bastakia, would allow you to witness the coral and limestone buildings built in the late 19th century. They were the homes of rich Persian merchants who traded in textiles and pearls. You’ll also get to see the wind-towers built in these homes, which were an early form of air-conditioning.
