Alserkal Art District in Dubai is a renovated abandoned warehouse that houses lots of art, from both local and international artists. This chic district is home to multiple galleries with a whole range of art to suit all tastes, in a friendly, family environment where you can wander around, and discover incredible things.
In the art district there is also a library, cinema and various restaurants, meaning you can spend the whole day here taking in the wonderful sights. Stop off for some lunch and settle down to a film in the evening, and the Tom and Serg cafe can make you a fantastic cup of coffee whenever you want to rest your feet.
There are plenty of activities for families to do nearby too. Take the kids to the indoor trampolining centre Bounce for hours of fun, climbing at Rock Republic, or drop by any of the gyms and sports centres just outside of the arts district, for a break from sightseeing and the beach.
