Work on the Museum of the Future, a unique incubator for futuristic innovation and design in Dubai, is progressing at a steady pace and the iconic landmark is on track for opening in 2020, said a report.
The construction site was visited by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, as part of his project supervision work.
He also visited the Dubai Future Foundation and was briefed on the development of work at various projects undertaken by the foundation, reported state news agency Wam.
Sheikh Mohammed was also given an update 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 Dubai ruler later 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.
The Museum of the Future is considered to be a unique incubator for futuristic innovation and design, currently under construction in Dubai.
The project builds on over five years of temporary immersive exhibitions held at the World Government Summit, it added.
