Scheduled to open in 2017
Dubai: Plans for a ‘Museum of the Future’ in the city were revealed by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai on Wednesday.
The Museum will open in 2017 in the Emirates Towers area near Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.
The museum’s motto, ‘See the future, create the future,’ is designed to reflect a new approach to government innovation. The institution will use design, technology prototyping and foresight to create real examples of change.
The museum is the first of its kind and represents a leading example of entrepreneurial governments embracing change and creating futuristic visions for a better world.
“The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it. Here in the UAE we think differently. While others try to predict the future, we create it,” said Shaikh Mohammad.
