DUBAI BEFORE THE “DUBAI MIRACLE”
Fortunately, the area where the museum is situated is very least affected by the change of Dubai from the last 15 to 20 years, it is fortunate as the areas where these ancient buildings are built are more likely to be left unchanged.

You can just spend an hour or two hours in the museum while the other times you can spend wandering around the streets, shopping, window-shopping, and enjoy the view of Dubai that you will probably not see in the modern side of the city.
