Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has recently visited the construction site for the upcoming Museum of the Future in Dubai to inspect the progress of the project, which is set to open in 2020.
The Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai was briefed on the development of work at various projects undertaken by the Dubai Future Foundation.
Sheikh Mohammed toured Area 2071, which is designed as a collaborative innovation hub that brings together individuals and organisations to form a creative community focused on solving important human challenges at scale. Area 2071 is considered a physical manifestation of the UAE Centennial Plan that aims to make the UAE the world’s leading nation by 2071.
Sheikh Mohammed was briefed on the progress of Dubai Future Foundation initiatives such as Dubai 10X, Dubai Future Accelerators, Dubai Future Academy, and One Million Arab Coders initiative among others.
The Museum of the Future is considered to be a unique incubator for futuristic innovation and design, currently under construction in Dubai, UAE.
It also builds on over five years of temporary immersive exhibitions held at the World Government Summit. These pop-ups led to the conception of the Dubai Future Foundation and the permanent Museum of the Future, set to become the world’s largest and most exciting home to tomorrow’s trends and opportunities.
