The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding

The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU) was established under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in 1998. Located in a traditional Wind Tower House in the heart of the historic Al Fahidi/Al Bastakiya District in Bur Dubai, the centre offers a range of enrichment activities through its award winning programmes. Operating under the centre’s philosophy and motto “Open Doors. Open Minds.” the SMCCU strives to raise awareness and demystify the local culture, customs and religion of the United Arab Emirates. With an overall objective to improve cross-cultural understanding and communication between locals and guests, visiting and residing across the UAE, we invite you to learn more about the local culture in Dubai.

The centre is open to the public Sunday through Thursday 8am to 6pm and Saturday from 9am to 1pm. Our office staff is available to welcome you Sunday through Thursday 9am to 5pm, and Saturday 9am to 1pm.
