Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum's House

Visit the former home and government seat of the ruling Al Maktoum family, Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum's House, built in 1894 for the present ruler’s grandfather and now preserved as a museum.

Inside you’ll see historic photographs, documents and furnishings, but the real thrill comes from stepping inside such a famous home, one of the oldest buildings in the city.

The building is a classic example of domestic Arabian architecture, complete with picturesque windtowers to catch the cooling breezes blowing in off the Gulf. From the top floor you can catch panoramic views of Dubai's Creek and skyscrapers.

Practical Info

Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum’s House is by the Creek in the Shindagha area of Bur Dubai.
