Ideas needed for a stopover in Dubai

I'm sure there are people on this board, who have visited Dubai, and could advise me on some interesting places to visit. We will be flying with Emirates to London next year, and we have booked a Hotel in Deira (suburb of Dubai I believe), and we only have 2 nights/one day. Any ideas on what to see in that short time?

There is a nice little museum underneath the old fort, with a lot of exhibits about dubai history and the environment. There are also dhow rides along the creek. Shopping is tremendous, either in the Suk or in the new malls, and the beaches are tremendous. You can get a car from your hotel, or use a taxi, they are cheap, safe, and clean. We go in and out of Dubai a lot, since we work in the Middle East, and we enjoy it every time.
