In 1910 the property was acquired by Sheikh Ahmed bin Dalmouk, the most famous pearl merchant in the region. He expanded the two-room house into a beautiful huge mansion.
As the years went by, the house passed from one hand to the other until, in 1994, the government of Dubai acquired it, restored it and dedicated it to tourist and cultural purposes.
In Heritage House, you can visit all the different parts of the house - the guest room, patio, living room, bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, and storehouse.
If you get tired you can also take a refreshing cup of tea in the central patio.
Next door to the house is Al Ahmadiya School, another of the city's must-see cultural landmarks.
An interesting visit
Due to its proximity to Dubai's Gold Souk, and its free entry, a visit to what is one of Dubai's few cultural centers is unmissable during your trip to the city.
