A desert city playground with a unique combination of Arabian culture, mega-malls and audacious architecture in a setting of year-round sun, sand and sea. Great family hotels and a ridiculous number of family attractions too.
Travel bucket list idea:
Museum of the Future
Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE)|museumofthefuture.ae|
This extraordinary, one-of-a-kind museum offers visitors an insight into what a future world will look like. Interactive exhibits and displays showcase cutting-edge technologies like AI, robotics, and virtual reality that delight, amaze and bamboozle. The highlight of the museum is undoubtedly the Future Lab, where visitors can try out futuristic technologies and even create their own inventions. Kids of all ages will love it here.
Even if you don’t go inside, at least stop by to see the building – an architectural marvel with the metallic facade, smothered in intricate geometric patterns.
From Matt: Highlight for me was the lift you can take to the top floor when you start your visit. It simulates a spaceship launch up to a space station. Brilliant!
Getting there & doing it
It’s an extremely popular exhibit, with limited places, so make sure you book well ahead to avoid disappointment.
When to do it
The museum is open all year round, seven days a week.
