Full description

Experience the vibrant history of Dubai on a cultural journey with Heritage Express.

The knowledgeable Emirati storytellers of Culture on Wheels guide you through a fascinating cultural tour, showcasing the city's most iconic landmarks such as Al Fahidi Fort, Al Seef, Al Shindagha, and Al Etihad Museum (Union House). Along the way, you'll hear intriguing tales and secrets of the past that bring the city's history to life.

Louvre Abu Dhabi champions cultural achievements of the UAE, from prehistory to the present day. The galleries are not separated by geography; instead, they are set in chronological order to promote art as a subject without borders, whilst encouraging curiosity and respect.

Indulge in Emirati snacks and traditional dishes, and participate in an insightful Q&A session at the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Centre for Cultural Understanding Heritage House.
