Located imposingly next to the Dubai superhighway, Sheikh Zayed Road, the Museum of the Future offers a glimpse into where science and technology can lead humans in the future. The “living” museum was opened by the Dubai Future Foundation and features immersive experiences for visitors to get a full feel of the limitless.
Design of the Museum
One of the most uniquely designed buildings the world will ever see, it is an asymmetric structure wrapped in glass and steel\. The museum is also covered in beautifully designed Arabic calligraphy that also functions as windows. The calligraphy forms poems by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum which express the hope of a beautiful future for all.
