Oh, the memories…

It’s hard to not visit Expo City Dubai and not have the memories of Expo 2020 Dubai come flooding back to you. If you miss the World Expo and want to relive the journey, you have to visit the all-new Expo 2020 Dubai Museum.

Expo Dubai Museum

The museum opens its doors on Saturday, May 18, 2024 which is International Museum Day. To celebrate the occasion museums around the UAE, including the Louvre Abu Dhabi will be opening their doors for free to the public.

And yes, you can enter the Expo 2020 Dubai Museum for free on the day, too. You can find the museum in the Opportunity District.

What to expect inside the Expo 2020 Dubai Museum

In short, the museum honours the World Expo’s impacts and ongoing legacy.

A multimedia experience welcomes visitors hosted by a falcon – the UAE’s national bird. The falcon features an original part of the magnificent model falcon used for ‘The Journey of the 50th’ show at Al Wasl Plaza for the UAE’s Golden Jubilee.

Visitors will weave their way from past to present as they step over the inclining ground – representing dunes, a symbol of the landscape from which Expo 2020 (now Expo City) rose.

A spotlight will also be shined on the UAE’s participation at previous World Expos including its first time in 1970, progressing to its candidacy to host the event. Visitors will also get to see the original masterplan design of Expo 2020 Dubai.
