The Dubai Museum of the Future opened its doors to the world on Tuesday in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai.
Nine years of work, the Museum of the Future is already recognized as the most beautiful building in the world.
The 77-foot modern architectural marvel, which tells the story of the future through a series of interactive exhibits, invites people to learn about the technologies and trends that will shape the future of humanity.
Covering an area of 30,000 square meters, the pillarless structure also represents a new world intellectual center.
It is a “living” lab designed to foster a spirit of collaborative innovation among the Arab world’s top scientists to inspire new, ready-to-use solutions to tomorrow’s biggest challenges and stimulate a new era of scientific discovery in the region and beyond.
Mohammad Bin Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs of the United Arab Emirates and President of the Museum of the Future, said: “The Museum of the Future was designed to help generate new solutions to future challenges.
“The Museum’s exhibits will fuel the passion of present and future generations and ignite their intellectual curiosity for the science, technology and knowledge that will help humanity flourish and prosper in the decades to come.
Al Gergawi added, “The Museum will create a global platform for trailblazers, innovators and critical thinkers to exchange ideas, concepts and visions to accelerate sustainable socio-economic development and shape an equitable future that works for everyone.
Al Gergawi announced that the Museum of the Future will host a series of international conversations and discussions immediately after its inauguration.
