About the Museum of the Future

The Museum began four years ago under the leadership of the Prime Minister’s Office, as a small part of the World Government Summit. It has since grown into the world’s leading platform for design, technology, and foresight. Each year, the Museum explores how emerging technology might impact the most important areas of our lives, areas such as education, healthcare, transportation, energy, security, and housing.

A permanent Museum of the Future, on the grounds of Emirates Towers facing Sheikh Zayed Road, is now under construction.
