What you need to know about Dubai Frame

The Dubai Frame opened in 2018, and since then has not only been a top tourist attraction with superb sights of both ‘new’ and ‘old’ Dubai, but The Dubai Frame has also become a spot to learn about Dubai’s history and culture – from past all the way to the future.

Check what you need to know below, and if you’re looking for more things to do while you’re visiting The Dubai Frame, this handy guide to Dubai Creek will sort you out

What is The Dubai Frame?

The Dubai Frame has a  stand-out structure, made out of 2,000 tonnes of steel, and captures the city in a colossal-sized frame, Visitors can actually go inside and up to the bridge of The Dubai Frame, overlooking  Zabeel Park.

The Dubai Frame is comprised of two 150m-high towers that are connected by the 93-metre long sky glass bridge at the top. Yet to be there? If you didn’t know, the bridge at The Dubai Frame has a completely see-through bottom to it, which is always an exhilarating thing to walk across.

Walk across it and be labelled one of the bravest of the bunch, and get amazing views whether you’re there for the day, sunset or at night.

What else is there to do at The Dubai Frame

Fancy taking a trip through time? Because that’s exactly what The Dubai Frame offers.

The Dubai Frame is split into three sections, starting off with the Old Dubai gallery as soon as visitors enter. The multimedia exhibition showcases Dubai’s transformation to what it is doing, exploring the city’s roots as a fishing village and featuring insights on Emirate heritage.

Then, visitors will head up to the sky deck of The Dubai Frame to see what Dubai looks like now, looking at ‘old’ Dubai to the North and ‘new’ Dubai to the south. This represents the present, but we think going during sunset is the best time to check it out.

Finally, it’s time to step into the future. Back on the ground floor of The Dubai Frame, visitors will head out via a swirl tunnel with special audio and visual effects, featuring all Dubai has planned which includes flying vehicles.

The Dubai Frame is also a place for live performances from local artists, including qanun, oud, harp and violin performances, along with special events throughout the year. Be sure to keep up-to-date right here www.dubaiframe.ae.
