About Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding - مركز الشيخ محمد للتواصل

Gain a greater appreciation of Dubai's culture and customs at the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU). The SMCCU opened in 1998 to help visitors gain a better understanding of the culture and customs of the UAE. The institution invites guests to take part in their full schedule of activities, including a range of Arabic classes, heritage tours, and guided mosque visits. Located in a beautifully restored wind tower house in the historic Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood in Bur Dubai, the centre offers a range of activities, from traditional cuisine to conversations with local Emiratis. With its motto, Open Doors, Open Minds, all questions – no matter how sensitive – are welcome and answered. Sign up for a traditional Emirati breakfast, lunch, or dinner and you'll start with a guided walking tour of the historic Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. Then take a seat on Bedouin-style carpets and pillows and enjoy a selection of traditional dishes while your local host answers questions about life in the emirate. Be sure to book early to guarantee a spot.
