The wait is nearly over!

Anyone who's driven along Sheikh Zayed Road would no doubt have seen that striking steel building with Arabic calligraphy designed all over it: the highly-anticipated Museum of the Future.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai has just revealed that the museum will officially open its doors to the public on Tuesday February 22, 2022.

In his tweet, Sheikh Mohammed described the Downtown Dubai structure as the "most beautiful building on earth", adding that the museum will be part of an "exceptional year" for Dubai.

Last summer, the Museum of the Future was hailed as one of the 14 most beautiful museums in the world in a National Geographic compilation, joining other stunning structures such as the National Museum of African American History and Culture in the US, the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum in Spain, and Brazil's Museu de Arte do Rio.
