My Old House: A Cultural Tour

Organised by Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi

Juma bin Rahma Al Darmaki’s house is one of the oldest houses located in the Hili district of Al Ain - his family set base there for generations and it still stands strong, featuring all the authentic details of life back in the olden days.

Relive the stories and memories of the great ancestors in the region with 'My Old House', a cultural tour that aims to introduce the public to Al Ain’s cultural and historical sites.
