Museum of Saruq Al Hadid

Another great museum to visit in the Shindagha region is the Saruq Al-Hadid Museum. It is nestled between the narrow corridors of Dubai’s historic districts and can be easily found using all the navigation panels in the area. The UAE Archaeological Museum has artifacts from the recently discovered archaeological site of Saruq Al-Hadid, which dates back to the Iron Age.

The site of Saruq Al-Hadid was discovered in 2002 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum while traveling on a charter flight over the Rub Al-Khali Desert. Part of the desert had a slightly different color from the rest, due to the slag from melting iron. More than 8,000 pieces of pottery, iron, and gold were found and unearthed at this site and are now on display at the Saruq Al Hadid Museum in Dubai.
