This small modest museum has the potential to grow big and definitely helps to delve into the UAE history and culture. I chose it over the Dubai Museum (that is still on my list!) and have no regrets. Human history lays in details and Women's...More

The Women’s Museum in Dubai was an awesome experience and very informative. My friend and I took our time reading all of the literature in each exhibit and had a great conversation with Hawra, the woman working there the day we went. It’s off the...More

This is a very small museum; but not without merit. It will take about an hour to really see the entire museum, so take the time to go without a guide. All the exhibits have English titles, so very easy to enjoy. It will give...More

We went to the Women's museum as part of a tour. It was totally worth it. Exhibits are well done and interesting. Lots of interesting facts presented and explored. Doesn't take long to tour the entire museum. We recommend.
