Activity Description

New Museum Hub displays 200-year-old antiques worth over Dh100 million. Items include precious artefacts, handmade paintings, medical electronic instruments. A majlis that was originally located at Qasr Al Bahar in Abu Dhabi, the residence of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan is among the rare antiques on display at a newly opened Museum Hub at Souk Al Marfa, the waterfront souk and marketplace on Deira Islands. The items are from the private collection of Emirati Naser Sulaiman, who has been painstakingly collecting this selection of artefacts and antiques for over 25 years. The Museum Hub is divided into 50 booths or 'museums', in line with the UAE completing 50 years of union, with each museum having a theme. Old coins and currency, a prolific agal and ghutra collection, a selection of yowlah sticks, military equipment, rare pieces of crockery and more can also be seen in the UAE 'museum'.
