Dubai could soon be home to even more museums, as ten are scheduled to open.
A range of new museums could attract more people to take flights to Dubai, with ten scheduled to open their doors by 2015.
Director of the architectural heritage department of Dubai Municipality Rashad Mohammed Bukhash told the Khaleej Times that at least one of these new centres will be open to the public by the end of next month.
The museum is set to be dedicated to Emirati poet Mubarak Al Aqaili and will be located in his former home.
Another will be devoted to the clothes worn by people across the region.
“You can get to know about the kind of fabrics and colours used by our previous generations, which were mostly imported from India and Pakistan,” Mr Bukhash added.
Some people could be planning to take flights to Dubai in order to attend the Samsung Beach Soccer Intercontinental Cup, which is being held for the first time later in the year.
