Discover the past at Etihad Museum

A state-of-the-art museum showcasing UAE modernity offers a unique window into the country’s fascinating history.

Etihad Museum, fittingly located at the very place where the declaration was signed that confirmed the foundation of the UAE back in 1971, takes visitors on a unique journey through decades of remarkable progress.

The striking culture spot, which is shaped like a manuscript, includes permanent and temporary halls, a theatre, an educational area, interactive maps and videos, and more.

The pavilions house exhibitions, interactive programmes and educational initiatives that explore the history-making events that shaped the unification of the seven emirates.

It is also home to an interactive pre-union panoramic map, a section on the founding rulers of the UAE, a gallery of old photos and historic artefacts, a library with 300 titles, temporary exhibits, seminars and plenty more.

It’s a great place to immerse yourself in the past.
Open daily 10am-8pm. 2nd of December Street, Jumeirah 1, Dubai, www.etihadmuseum.dubaiculture.ae (04 515 5771).
