Dubai Museum of the Future lights up for first time


DUBAI – The Museum of the Future lit up for the first time on Saturday as final preparations were underway to complete the future landmark in Dubai.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, witnessed the installation of the final component in the Museum of the Future’s façade.

“A universal architectural icon, the Museum of the Future combines between our authentic Arab culture and far-reaching ambitions. It is a global engineering icon, but speaks the Arabic language,” Sheikh Mohammed said.

“Dubai will continue to deliver architectural masterpieces as the world continues to be in progress for those who know exactly what they want,” Sheikh Mohammed promised.

Located in the Emirates Towers area near Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, the 30,000-square-meter and 77-metre-high iconic building has an instantly recognisable shape, epitomised by its futuristic stainless steel façade with illuminated glazed Arabic calligraphy.

It combines elements of exhibition, immersive theater and themed attraction. Seven floors of exhibition space will showcase innovative and futuristic concepts, services, and products for the future of cities. ICA/Expat Media
