Camel Museum Dubai


camel museum

Camel Museum was built in the 1940s, in the Al Shindagha area. It was called “Camel-Riding House” or “Beit Al Rekab”. This is remembered as one of the properties of the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum. This house is located near Sheikh Saeed bin Maktoum’s House. It has one floor, with large interior courtyard overlooking rooms and diwans (a few grand halls), along with western and eastern entrances. During the early stages of its construction, the house consisted of a storeroom and a grand hall, then it was expanded in subsequent stages to include more rooms and facilities. It was used for training camels/horses and as a stall barn for them.

This has now become a museum to display all about camels. The visitors to the Camel Museum have a unique opportunity to get to know a wealth of information related to the camels of the Arabian Peninsula.
