Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding

The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding has been set up to bring down barriers between people of different nationalities, and to help understand the traditions, customs and religion of the UAE.

One activity carried out to bring this vision to life is the Popular Jumeirah Mosque visit, which takes place four times a week as a fixed public tour. Guests at the mosque are treated to a talk on the UAE Culture and the UAE’s official religion, Islam. A question and answer session is held afterwards.

Other activities that are offered include Spoken Arabic courses, UAE Culture & Dubai Orientation courses, Bastakiya Walking Tour, Cultural Breakfast and Lunch, Coffee Mornings, Question and Answers sessions, Story Circle for Children.

The Centre has a heritage shop with locally made handicrafts & authentic gifts. The centre can also arrange cultural events and corporate programs upon request. For details of the centre’s volunteer program, contact: smccu@emirates.net.ae

The Centre is located in a renovated traditional wind-tower house in the Bastakiya area of downtown Dubai.
