Fodor's Expert Review Falcon & Heritage Centre

World Trade Centre Area and Burj Dubai Museum/Gallery

Hunting with falcons and keeping birds of prey is a common pastime in Arabic desert culture. This center is the only place in Dubai where birds may be legally sold. It's also a one-stop shop for all a falconer's needs, including dietary supplements, books, hoods, and lures. Most of the 20 or so stores in the center also have a range of birds on show, and you can learn about them from the knowledgeable store owners or at the small on-site museum.
