Al Ahmadiya School is a semi-formal private school in Dubai, and is today owned and managed by Dubai Culture and Arts Authority. Founded in the year 1912 by Sheikh Ahmed bin Dalmouk, of the pearl trade in the Persian Gulf. Following his demise, his son Sheikh Mohammed bin Ahmed bin Dalmouk completed the construction of the school and named it Al Ahmadiya School in honor of his father. The Dubai government had worked on the restoration of Al Ahmadiya School in mid-1994 and converted it into a museum which was inaugurated by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum on March 20, 2000, representing the genesis of semi-formal education in Dubai. Recently celebrated its Centenary. Working Hours at Al Ahmadiya School are Saturday to Thursday: 08:00 – 19:30, Friday: 14:30 – 19:30
