I first came across Antiques Museum in Al Quoz about three years ago, it had been recommended to me by a friend as being a rather different place to check out.  I went three years ago and then tried to go again and couldn't find it!  Last week though I got some good directions from one of the twitterati and managed to find it.   The first thing I must say is that, it is not a Museum, it is a warehouse, and were there any antiques there?  genuinely I doubt it very much.

BUT there is a hell of alot of other stuff there, I mean tons and tons of stuff, this warehouse is basically Karama indoors! it is huge and has so many little nooks and crannies that you can easily get lost.  They sell everything from tourist tat, to beautiful bedcovers and cushions, shisha, shoes!  you name it they have it at Antiques Museum.  I specifically went as I have some pictures that need framing, I was really impressed with the choice of frames available and the fabulous collection of Middle Eastern art that was for sale.

I say if you have visitors or you just fancy somewhere different, get yourself along to Antiques Museum, if you can find that is!! here are my directions ...  you know the lights BEHIND Times Square? turn left there, then second right, then first right, then park. It is a big grey warehouse on the right hand side.

Enjoy!!!
