Museum of the Future – Dubai

Museum of the Future – Dubai

The Museum of the Future in Dubai welcomes people of all ages to see, touch, and shape our shared future. Go on a journey through possible futures and bring hope and knowledge back to the present.

This man-made marvel is not a museum but a time capsule that takes you to the future. Inaugurated in February 2022, it boasts an awe-inspiring steel exterior bearing inscriptions from His Highness Sheik Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s Arabic poetry in a contemporary art style. The majestic spherical structure is column-free and arrests attention with its dramatic play of natural light.

Designed by the artist Mattar bin Lahej and designer Shaun Killa, this majestic aesthetically appealing beauty is a hat tip to humanity, earth and space. While the sphere represents humanity, the green mound represents earth and space is a void which is for the uncertain future.

Staying true to its purpose, high-tech research on the topics of big data analysis, artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality and human-machine interaction is carried out here.

The exhibits are dedicated to the issues of climate change, the environment, health and well-being, spirituality, the future of human life and space exploration. This is one of the best among all the new museums around the world.
