Initially launched as a pop-up exhibit at the World Government Summit 2016, the Museum of the Future will eventually become a permanent site with a supporting organisation located in Dubai.
Launched by Dubai prime minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the museum aims to become an exposition for futuristic innovations and designs.
“The Museum of the Future will be an incubator for ideas, a driver for innovation, and a destination for inventors and entrepreneurs from around the world,” said Sheikh Mohammed.
The museum will offer advanced courses and specialised workshops, as well as public talks and events. It is intended to offer a platform to demonstrate and test the latest inventions and prototypes.
According to the organiser, “[The building] will also host innovation facilities and design studios with universities, companies, and research partners. The building will be built in part using 3D printing technologies, and will change over time to test and reflect the latest advancements in various fields.”
