Plans for the Museum of the Future were first announced by the Dubai Ruler on March 4, 2015 – a project which has been established under the umbrella of the Dubai Future Foundation.
But what exactly does MOTF hold for us to see? Simply put, as described on the museum’s website, it’s a “home for inspiration, open to all”.
Back in September 2021, Emirates Woman became the first publication to shoot on the site of the Museum of the Future for The Icon Issue’s cover shoot.
As part of this groundbreaking issue, we spoke to Majed Al Mansoori, Deputy Executive Director of the Museum of the Future about the primary focus of the new iconic Dubai landmark.
“The Museum of the Future is a transformative environment that will engage all senses in a life-altering experience that will invite visitors to look at their world through a new lens and encourage them to embrace innovative ways of thinking,” he said.
“It will showcase living, breathing examples of a better, hopeful future. It strives to be a place of tolerance and inclusiveness and promote a pro-human value system.”
We can’t wait to see what’s in store at MOTF.
