What's So Interesting About Saeed Al Maktoum House?

Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House is a museum positioned in the memorable part, Al Shindagha, of the city of Dubai. The gallery gets its name from Saeed bin Maktoum Al Maktoum who was an old ruler of Dubai and the holder of the house which has now been renovated into a museum. This historic building was established in the year 1896 and continued home to the Al Maktoum home right till the death of the sheik in 1958. The nicest time of the day to visit Saeed Al Maktoum House is in the twilight when the sun is less brutal. You can enjoy the sea wind in the enclosure and also take nicer pictures because of the reduced sun. The evenings also offer outstanding sunset impressions over Dubai Creek from the museum.
