It’s going to be a great day in May 2016 for Emirates art life since a new museum is about to open and show some views of civilization that existed 4000 years ago in Dubai.
Samples of antique items found from the Sarooq Al Hadeed archaeological site will be released for the first time to people for watching, and will be located in the historical area of Shindagha.
Visitors will be able to observe gold, silver, brass objects, plus also things that were used by Dubai inhabitants thousands years ago. The Iron Age civilization was firstly discovered by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai while he was traveling on his inspection tour in some of the Dubai rural areas back in 2002.
Then there were found many fabulous things like unique metallic artefacts, ornaments of gold and precious stones, iron and bronze, precious stones, bronze swords and other decorated daggers. It’s been already 13 years since the start of the excavation in 2003.
The building of the museum was chosen to be the heritage house in Shindagha because it is able to show the best of the objects in the best possible way. But now the much bigger museum is to be built in the same location in 3 years, which mean it is supposed to be finished by the end of 2018. The place was chosen not spontaneous, the reason is that Shindagha was a historical area of Dubai, so it will house 50 museums under 17 wings.
So in overall, the area of Al Fahidi is to be transformed to become an art gallery. And the traditional Bur Dubai souqs and Deira souqs are to be uplifted.
There will be some of the roads in the heritage area that are going to be turned into pedestrian pathways for tourists.
