A cultural initiative, unique in the Arab world and Gulf region. A space to explore and celebrate the lives of the women in the UAE. A place where people can meet and appreciate the achievements of the women of the UAE. Bait Al Banat is a house of historical importance dating from the 1950′s. Its name translates as The Girls House. This project was established by an Emirati woman, Professor Rafia Ghubash in order to preserve the history of women in the UAE and to break down stereotypes and reveal the extraordinary role that UAE women have played in defining their culture and shaping their society. The Women’s Museum is an ambitious and multifaceted initiative with several key aspects: the Museum offers an introduction to the lives of UAE women; the Memory of the Place exhibition revisits the past of the Gold Souq area; the Diwan Ousha Bint Khalifa space celebrates the life and work of the acclaimed UAE poet; and the gallery spaces hold permanent and temporary exhibitions of works by women artists.
60 - 90 minutes tour of the Women's Museum
- There are a lot of interesting artifacts on display, but the space itself is not very large so there is not a lot of walking from one exhibit to the next.
- The Women’s Museum is home to the Um Al Duwais Perfume and Gift Shop.
- The museum also has its own café; The Banat Bu Ghanem Café is actually a public space, linking the museum to the surrounding Deira community. In addition to traditional eats and rich Arabian coffee, visitors can also purchase artisanal crafts, artwork and jewelry.
