Normally, museums take you to the past, but UAE decided to do something different. They developed a museum that takes you to the future. The Future Museum Dubai is a futuristic museum that is the first of its kind in the world. It showcases the future of art and technology and what Dubai will look like fifty years from now. Visitors can explore a wide range of cutting-edge and interactive exhibits that are designed to stimulate their senses and encourage them to think about what the future holds for them.
There is also an onsite 3D cinema, an auditorium, as well as a library where visitors can research topics or conduct experiments with science kits. The museum has a futuristic hall of mirrors that visitors can walkthrough. There are 120 curved panels of mirrored glass that cover a floor area of 100 square meters and reflect the images on the walls onto themselves. This experience is designed to offer visitors an unprecedented look into their own lives and futures while they’re exploring what the future holds. The museum was scheduled to open in 2020 but plans changed due to the pandemic. It is now open to the general public and has a whole lot of stuff to do.
