Heritage House is a historic and traditional house that reflects the past of Dubai. The building dates from the end of the 19th century. In 1910 the property was acquired by Sheikh Ahmed bin Dalmouk, the most famous pearl trader in the region. Already on his property, the house went from having two rooms to becoming a mansion of 950 square meters. As the years went by this house went from hand to hand until, in 1994, the government of Dubai acquired it to restore it and dedicate it for tourism and cultural purposes.
