Bait Al Naboodah Museum

Bait Al Naboodah Museum

Timeless traditions meet thoughtful architecture

The extraordinary Bait Al Naboodah opened its doors as a museum in 1995. This magnificent house originally belonged to Obaid Bin Eissa Bin Ali Al Shamsi, nicknamed Al Naboodah who lived in this house, which was built in 1845, with his wife and seven children. Today this charming habitat is a signature of timeless traditions and thoughtful architectural insights of the forefathers of this region.

Built around a large courtyard, you come across inventive walls made out of coral, innovative methods of air conditioning and inimitable decorative carvings, in both plaster and wood. You can also learn about daily family life and routines through displayed work by Arabian craftsmen of a bygone era.

* Bait Al Naboodah Museum is currently closed for restoration.
