Dubai Museum

Dubai Museum is located in Al Fahidi Fort, which was considered the seat of the king, and a bulwark for defense, because it is located on the borders of Dubai at that time, where it was built almost 200 years ago, specifically in 1787 AD, and it was renewed during the reign of Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum to be opened as a museum Dubai National in 1971. It should be noted that the museum contains many sections that allow visitors to see the archaeological pieces, including: pottery, buildings, cemeteries, weapons, and other antiquities.

Burj Al Arab

The Burj Al Arab, which was previously called (the Arabian Sail), is considered because its design is similar to the sail of the boat from the most luxurious hotels in Dubai, knowing that it was built in the period between the years (1993 AD-1999 AD), and it was classified globally as the third tallest building in the world As it reaches a height of three hundred and twenty one meters, which is equivalent to 1,050 feet. It is worth noting that this tower is located within an artificial island connected by a curved bridge between it and the land, and it is distinguished by that it is built on sand instead of rocks, which is unusual in relation to what is usual with regard to building tall buildings, in addition to being supported by columns that extend a distance 45 m below sea level.
