Sheikh Saeed Al Maktom House

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

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
