Hg2 : The Hedonist

Al Ahmadiya School

Founded in 1912, this modest school has educated many of Dubai’ s most illustrious residents, including HH Sheikh Mohammed. Now a museum, it provides a fascinating glimpse into Emirati life before the oil boom, with wonderful old photos and rare video footage. To step into the beautifully restored classroom is like going back in time, and helps visitors understand the educational achievements of this Dubai institution.
