Dubai's  “Museum of the Future” Named Among The World’s Most Beautiful Museum.

National Geographic has listed the Dubai's “Museum of the Future” as the 14th most beautiful museum in the world.

The Museum of Future is considered as most beautiful because of its astounding architecture and sophisticated technological innovations. This museum is set to become a new global landmark once completed.

Designed by Engineer Sean Keila, the building spans an area of 30,000 square meters, with the seven-story pillarless structure rising 77 meters above the ground. The stainless-steel facade, which extends over 17,000-square meters, is illuminated by 14,000 meters of Arabic calligraphy designed by the Emirati artist Mattar bin Lahej.

The museum is linked by two bridges. The first extending to Jumeirah Emirates towers and the second one is Emirates Towers metro station.

The facade consists of 1,024 plates manufactured entirely by robots. The installation period of the facade lasted for more than 18 months. The museum is also powered by 4000 megawatts of solar energy produced by a station connected to the building.

The Arabic calligraphy includes quotes by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

They included that, “We may not live for hundreds of years, but the products of our creativity can leave a legacy long after we are gone,” and “The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it. The future does not wait. The future can be designed and built today.”

The Museum presents the UAE and the world’s gateway to the future with its unique design and latest technologies. “Once complete, the museum will give visitors a glimpse of the future,” said Mohammad Al Gergawi, vice chairman of the Board of Trustees and managing director of the Dubai Future Foundation.
