Dubai Culture maintains audience interaction with Dubai's heritage and history through additional virtual tours

Within the framework of Dubai Culture and Arts Authority's (Dubai Culture) commitment to provide public access to the city's historical places and its rich cultural and heritage landmarks through digital platforms, the authority has been actively reviewing its assets showcased on the online platform Dubai 360 due to the temporary site closures on public safety grounds. 


Through these virtual tours offered by Dubai Culture, the authority has been providing audiences in the UAE and worldwide with the ability to visit various heritage and historical sites to capture Dubai's history and heritage, and to remain in contact with its cultural offering. 


Online visitors can enjoy panoramic scenes of the city’s heritage and historical treasures that include Etihad Museum, Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, Coin Museum, Naif Museum, Museum of Poet Al Aqeli and Dubai Museum.


Dubai Culture has now added Al Shindagha Museum, which includes Perfume House and the Dubai Creek: Birth of a City House, to the virtual tours available on the digital platform, providing a unique opportunity for the public to immerse themselves in the attractions. Dubai 360 will display a selection of detailed photos, and panoramic videos of Al Shindagha Museum, located in the Al Shindagha Historical District alongside the Dubai Creek. 


Visitors can also ‘walk’ around the Perfume House to get to know Emirati culture through the wonderful aromatic scents and traditional perfume industry, and enjoy the success of the cultural and commercial prosperity of the Creek as narrated by the people of Dubai in the of Dubai Creek House.


In addition, exploring the Al Shindagha Museum, and all other museums, and many of the Authority's heritage and cultural sites, will be available at a later stage through live virtual tours accompanied by a cultural guide, which Dubai Culture has started organizing for schoolchildren at Etihad Museum throughout the past month.


Through this initiative, Dubai Culture is investing in its digital presence to bring the world closer to Dubai’s vibrant history and strengthening Emiratis’ relationship with their rich culture and heritage, especially among the younger generations. Connecting with roots helps builds national pride and a prosperous future.
