The museum offers a range of activities and experiences, with something for every age and level of interest. While exploring the unresolved questions of the site, the galleries will simultaneously address the science and theories behind artefact discoveries and the chronology of the site.

Beautiful and dramatic object displays show off some of the many thousands of artefacts that have been found at Saruq Al-Hadid. These objects have changed our understanding of the history of Dubai.

Children have their own gallery trail which keeps them involved and encourages them to explore each room in turn. The trail makes life easier for parents with energetic youngsters.

      The museum displays thousands of golden, bronze and iron pieces, discovered at the Saruq Al Hadid archaeological site in the Rub al Khali desert, south of the emirate of Dubai. The Arabian Peninsula’s Iron Age at the newly-opened museum in Dubai’s Historical District – a confluence of the past and the present. Location near Shindaga.

      Huge mature ficus tree in the courtyard adds to the ambience and shade. The work is immense and will probably take decades to unearth. Dubai archaeological museum Museum related to UAE history, boating, food courts.

      Over expectation. Something interesting you may never seen are waiting for you to figure out. Thank the patient guide Waleed, Shouq and also the security. Had a nice day even didn’t dig anything out from the sand.

      Interesting old manuscripts and weapons. But limited numbers and not amusing for children. So if your are looking for a day out with kids, this should not be on top of your list. They will get bored easily. But very good for older adults or those interested in history.
