The Museum of the Future is exactly as it sounds; a space to exhibit innovation and engineering as tools to develop a more resourceful, technologically-driven future. Visit the Museum of the Future in Dubai to be a part of the revolution.
The initial opening date of the Museum of the Future was said to be late 2020; however, the date has now been pushed to early 2021. The exact dates are yet to be determined. Once the opening dates have been released, Museum of the Future tickets will be available for booking.

Here’s a quick look at the Museum of the Future
Here's everything you need to know about Museum of the Future Dubai.
The Museum of the Future is led by HRH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, as part of his Dubai Future Foundation initiative. According to the foundation, “The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it.” Based on this, the Museum of the Future promises to be a platform of learning and exploration, where innovative solutions will be discussed and created dedicated to issues that will directly impact the future: climate change, education, transportation, healthcare, food security, and outer space, with emphasis on leveraging artificial intelligence. The project was announced back in 2015 and is said to open in early 2021.
The Museum of the Future attempts to defy all artistic boundaries and architectural odds. Designed by Killa Designs, the unique structure, built across seven floors, measuring about 78 m in height, will instantly catch your eye at Sheikh Zayed Road – at first sight, it resembles as massive silver oval with an open center, adorned with black calligraphy in Arabic, also open to interpretation as an eye. The structure uses almost 2,400 intersecting, diagonal, fiberglass and stainless steel panels, making it one of the most complex construction projects yet. The museum has a LEED certification, the highest awarded to green structures.
Along with displaying various innovative technologies for the public as part of being a major tourist attraction, this revolutionary museum will also carry out specialized workshops and conferences, teach advanced courses, host design studios, and provide a platform for testing prototypes of emerging technology. Some futuristic technologies include a brain implant that can read thoughts and a micropill that can help fight obesity. The museum will also use augmented technology, AI, and virtual reality, to create an immersive viewing experience for visitors. Exhibitions from previous World Government Summits, including the interesting Human 2.0 display, will also be available for public viewing.
