Dubai Museum of the Future

Dubai is renowned for attracting global brands through technological innovation and a thriving startup ecosystem and attractions. This futuristic city is home to a number of breathtaking architectural projects, including the Museum of the Future.

The project’s cost is 500 million AED, which is approximately 136 million USD.

The Museum was unveiled in 2015 and was incorporated into the Dubai Future Foundation on April 24, 2016. Inside, you’ll find a collection of innovation labs devoted to the most pressing social issues: healthcare, education, energy, and transportation. Additionally, the museum features a permanent section of laboratories dedicated to future innovations in a variety of fields.

The museum will serve as a showcase for leading technology companies and startups to showcase and test their latest inventions. This is where important collaboration between businesses, research institutes, and universities will take place.

This futuristic architectural project will serve as the starting point for a new era, a space for creativity, and a location for the most significant developments. Additionally, the Museum of the Future is intended to be a place of tolerance that embraces a diversity of cultural, philosophical, social, and spiritual perspectives.

The design of the Museum reflects its futuristic concept. It consists of 2400 intersecting steel elements and 1024 facade panels. The height of the Museum is 78 meters.

The building has a torus shape and forms a ring with a void in the centre. Its facade is decorated with Arabic calligraphy with poetic phrases by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The design concept was developed by the Dubai-based architectural company Killa Design, which won the design competition for this project in 2015.

According to the chief architect: “The integral part of the structure represents the building that we see today, while the void part is what we do not yet know, in other words, unknown knowledge or the future.”
The Museum of the Future is scheduled to open in 2020. According to its creators, the museum is expected to attract more than a million visitors per year, with more than half of those visitors being foreign visitors. The museum will provide an excellent opportunity to encounter the future.
