A tour of the collection on Emirates 24/7

Ahmed Obaid Al Mansoori has been a collector of artifacts and manuscripts for almost his entire life — a kind of Emirati Indiana Jones.

His passion stems from a desire to share the rich history Dubai has to offer that reach far beyond its modern achievements.

Saeed Al Qasqoos recently had the chance to pay a visit to the fruition of his work — a museum that’s just opened called Crossroads of Civilizations.
