Dubai’s new icon, the Museum of the Future, has officially been inaugurated by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

His Highness was accompanied by his sons, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) and His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, to open Dubai’s new landmark building.

The spectacular opening of the building marked a new chapter for Dubai with the Museum of the Future set to give a “message of hope, a global scientific platform and an integrated institutional framework to shape a better future for all of us”, Sheikh Mohammed said, per The National.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Hamdan declared the museum is set to be “an intellectual laboratory for cities of the future and governments of the future. It will play a key role in strengthening Dubai’s future position”.

The inauguration of the Museum of the Future comes seven years after the iconic project was announced.

What is the Museum of the Future?

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.
