'Museum of the Future' named one of world's 14 most beautiful museums
We’re not surprised…
Dubai is constantly evolving and pushing boundaries when it comes to incredible buildings, record-breaking feats and technological wonders. Now, the amazing ‘Museum of the Future’ building has been named one of the world’s most beautiful museums.
National Geographic magazine made the list, and with its eye-catching design, we are not surprised that the Museum of the Future made it onto the list. The jaw-dropping structure is a unique design shaped like an eye with a hollowed-out middle and covers an area of 30,000 square metres and is 7-stories standing at 77m high.

The emirate’s ambitions are reflected in an engineering miracle like Dubai’s Museum of the Future that has been globally recognised as the world’s most beautiful museums even before its completion.”
