Sheikh Saeed House & The Heritage Village

(x0)  | By: angel32 | 2,031 Views | 0 Replies

Sheikh Saeed House overlooks the mouth of Dubai Creek and is a listed national monument. Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum was the father of the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum and the grandfather of Dubai's former ruler, Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The year-round exhibition inside showcases the history of Dubai dating back to 1896. It was once the seat of the local government and a venue of political & social events whilst Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum was in residence here.

Restoration began in 1986 & the fully restored complex nowadays shows old photographs, paintings, manuscripts & art pieces from the early days of the emirate. 
I love the old photographs of Al Fahidi Fort (built in the 18th century) and the first healthcare centre: Al Maktoum Hospital as well as one of the first education buildings: Al Ahmadiya School.
