The Dubai History Museum is housed within the restored Al Fahidi Fort. The Fort was erected in 1787 to protect the city from invasion. It was opened as a museum in 1971. The graphically designed displays and hologram movies gives a detailed description of how life was dated as far back as the 3rd millenium B.C. to the present day. Some exhibits detailed the re-creations of labyrinthine souk (commercials center) and the typical homes as well as the social customs, and how life was living next to the sea.
