Saruq Al Hadid Museum

The Saruq Al-Hadid Archaeology Museum is located in a historic building in Dubai’s Shindagha Heritage District. It showcases the story of the remote desert site, Saruq Al-Hadid, also known as ‘the Way of Iron,’ which was a significant metalworking center around 3,000 years ago. The museum utilizes state-of-the-art technology to display objects from Saruq Al-Hadid publicly for the first time, offering insight into the impressive skills of the people who worked at this ancient Iron Age ‘factory.’

The building housing the museum was constructed in 1928 and holds historical importance, having once belonged to Sheikh Juma bin Maktoum Al Maktoum. It is a well-preserved example of traditional Dubai architecture, built with local materials like coral stone, gypsum, and chandal wood. The museum’s incorporation of early Emirati architecture with modern technology symbolizes the revitalization of the historic Shindagha Heritage District, which is among the oldest quarters in Dubai.
