One of the top items in any tourist’s ‘to do list’ is souvenir shopping, especially for first timers. Buying small, or not that small, gifts for family, friends and colleagues has become a must for all visitors and the souvenir industry is thriving all over the world.
The Antique Museum in Al Quoz, Dubai is a dream come true, as far as souvenir and gift shopping is concerned. Antique Museum is a huge warehouse packed with literally millions of items that cater to every taste and budget. If you decide to pay a visit to the Antique Museum be aware that you need at least 3 to 4 hours to just go through the numerous small passages in between tall warehouse shelves crammed with artifacts, representing not only local Emirati culture but also general Arabic culture of the Middle East and North Africa. It is actually a challenge for the visitor to find an item that the Antique Museum does not carry.
