  • The Museum parking area and nearby public parking areas are available (relatively few)
  • Do not self drive to museums and heritage sites as they are located in crowded old city areas and parking is a scarcity there; you are rather advised to use public transport.
  • Wear easy to slip in and out footwear as many places would need you to remove your footwear.

Dubai is unarguably one of the most sought after places for people who want to do shopping, go sightseeing for man-made marvels, or simply enjoy good food and perhaps even a taste of nightlife.  While these keep the grownups engrossed for hours on end on a vacation, the same cannot be said for the children who accompany them – unless it is Dubai that you are talking about. There is a quite a lot that even the children can look forward to when it comes to Dubai. Plenty of choices abound to ensure that the kids have their fun and enjoy the visit as much as the parents do.

To begin with, Kidzania in Dubai Mall offers a one-of-its-kind experience for the kids aged between four and sixteen years. A place where children can experience 80 different role-playing professions in real-city environment, Kidzania is replete with buildings, streets, cars, and shops of multi-national and local brands. Children get a rare chance to role-play and mimic the day-to-day activities of adults in real life. They can become a police officer, pilot, journalist, fireman, chef, doctor, beautician and many more, and perform “jobs” for which they get paid in kidZos, KidZania's own currency. Kidzania is open 7 days a week, from 10:00 am to 11 pm (Sunday to Wednesday) and till 12 midnight (Thursday to Saturday). The entry tickets are priced at Child - (4 to 16 years) - AED 140, Adult - (17 years and over) - AED 95, Toddler - (2 to 3 years) - AED 95; infants get free entry. All adults must be accompanied by a kid to get entry.

Another hotspot for kids, the Kidville is located at Dubai Marina, The Walk at Jumeirah and is the ideal place for children under six years. Kids can dance, play musical instruments, or do supervised cooking; for artistically inclined children, Kidville has several painting, drawing and artwork sessions and even a little children’s gym. Camp Kidville holds weekly themes that include The Wild Wild West and Safari Adventure, full of movement games. Kidville musicians perform live jam sessions; interactive story time, dramatic play, and take-home art projects ensure that there is never a dull moment for the little ones.  Kidville’s one-week summer Camp Arendelle is an amazing adventure inspired by Disney's Frozen! Children can dress-up, dance, perform, and do activities based on their favourite characters. Projects like Water Crystals, Instasnow, Build Your Own Snowman and design your own Ice Castle are literally cool for the kids during the summer. Kidville has different tiers of memberships, and come with “bring a guest” passes.

Chuck E. Cheese´s is a wonderful family entertainment centre and restaurant at Dubai Outlet Mall on the e Dubai-Al Ain Road. Spread across 50,000 square feet, Chuck E. Cheese´s is a sit-down pizza restaurant, full of fun and entertainment for kids as well as adults. It has more than 200 games and diversions like arcade machines, drives, sky tubes, coupled with a toddler zone and Studio ‘C’. An Ice Skating Rink and a four-lane bowling alley are the highlights of this kids’ destination. Chuck E. Cheese´s restaurant serves up a choice of delicious pizzas in combos with a variety of toppings, appetisers and sandwiches. Chuck E. Cheese´s is open from 10 am to 10 pm (Saturday to Wednesday) and to 12 midnight (Thursday to Friday). For about AED 140, you get a family pizza, 4 refillable soft drinks, 1 trip to salad bar, bites and a 30-token card. It is also a great place for birthday parties, as the child gets a memorable experience of friends, food, fun and entertainment all at one place.

“Would you like to eat first or paint first?” asks Café Céramique at the town centre shopping mall, Jumeirah, and sets itself apart from others. It combines the paint-your-own-ceramics idea with food and beverages to offer a uniquely creative experience. The kids will find the attraction of ceramics painting irresistible, as they express their budding creativity in a frolic of colors and preserve it forever on a ceramic. Café Céramique provides children with all the necessary materials such as brushes, sponges, palettes, tools and paints and the painted ceramics creations are glazed and fired at the premises itself. They also conduct 2-hour art workshops for children that include kids’ meals and painting materials, along with teaching of techniques like dot works, brush strokes and sponging; the workshops usually cost around AED 95 for each kid, while regular food for two should cost around AED 120.

Apart from the ones above, Dubai also has several other theme parks, water parks, gaming and entertainment zones that ensure that the children return with their own share of fond memories and stories to tell their friends back home.
