When people think of Dubai, they think of shimmering beaches, luxurious hotels and shopping sprees; and the last thing that comes to mind are museums. However, there is a whole other cultural side to Dubai that exists, and this is where the Salsali Private Museum comes in.The Salsali Private Museum (SPM) is the first Private Museum of Contemporary Art in Dubai, and in the region. Located in the Alserkal Avenue, and in the heart of the local Art district of industrial Al Quoz, the museum was opened in 2011 by its founder, Ramin Salsali. The museum is the realization of his dream to open a place to share his extensive private collection with the public in Dubai. The collection consists of over 400 artworks including paintings, installations and video art, to name a few.The addition of SPM to the list of cultural attractions in Dubai on the Trip Advisor website would help more people aware of the more serious, cultural dimension Dubai has to offer. Therefore, we are very interested in adding the Salsali Private Museum to your list of sights online and in your next edition of the Dubai book, as Trip Advisor is now one of the world's best and most renowned travellers' guides.

I visit now a couple of times the museum, and I love the environment in Al Qouz with all these galleries located in the Alserkal Avenue. It is definitely a visit worth. Opening ours: Saturday - Thursday, 11am - 6pm!

Staying in Al Quoz

Neighbourhood Profile
Al Quoz
Al Quoz sits literally at the halfway point between old and new Dubai. At first sight it has little to recommend it: warehouses and factories dominate the area, with some residential areas on the outskirts. Heavy goods vehicles roar up and down the roads and laborers stop at small hole-in-the-wall cafes for a cheap lunch. But it is fast becoming a magnet for art lovers: Alserkal Avenue is a significant contemporary art hub, home to 25 galleries and arts spaces, with ambitious expansion plans. The galleries host exhibitions, talks, panel discussions, auctions, and community events. If you love art, pass by to visit the galleries, it’s a great opportunity to get a sense of art and community in the region and to sit alongside key influencers and artists as they go about their day.
