DUBAI | Museum of the Future

Museum will host innovation labs focusing on health, education, smart cities, energy and transport and a permanent section on the greatest global innovations.

Dubai — A $500 million Museum of the Future that will actively produce futuristic inventions and support the UAE’s mission to be a global innovation engine will rise near Emirates Towers on Shaikh Zayed Road in Dubai.

The iconic museum that will be a symbol of Dubai will open in 2017.

Speaking at the launch ceremony, His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai said: “The President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has declared 2015 to be the year of innovation in the UAE. Today we show how serious and committed we are to that mission by turning the UAE into a major international destination for innovators.”

The museum’s motto, “See the future, create the future”, reflects a new approach to government innovation. Rather than just displaying exhibits or publishing reports, the new 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,” Shaikh Mohammed said.

A promising design. A general observation: Dubai is rather good at collecting and exposing innovations, but it should innovate more by itself.

A "museum" won't help much in this regard. It should rather become an experience, research and education center, that combines the museum aspect with interactive and innovative processes. Although at least overall student enrollment looks pretty bright in the city.

Love it! And really think that Dubai needs more cultural spaces!

An innovative museum in a country that does not show any progress in human rights.

Nothing major just Arabic synonyms of words like: invention, progression, innovation and so on ...

According to the video, the museum promises hologram shows at night!

too kitschy for my taste. Still, a quite interesting design.

A lot of the Dubai stuff is a little bit too over the top for me actually.
