The Museum of the Future is touted to be the hub of futuristic ideas, innovation, and the one-stop destination for inventors from all over the world. To ensure that the museum of the future is truly futuristic, many parts of the museum will be built using 3D printing technologies.
In the words of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai,
“The world is entering a new era of accelerated knowledge and great technological revolutions. We aim to lead in that era, not to follow and lag behind. The Museum of the Future is the first step of many to come, marking the beginning of great achievements. The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it. While others try to predict the future, we create it,” he added. “Museum of the Future will be an integrated environment empowering creative minds to test, fund and market ideas for futuristic prototypes & services”
Now, a museum is just for us to visit past exhibits and learn about our history. The Museum of the Future looks beyond its ages and will have advanced courses and workshops on futuristic technologies, so people can get acquainted with them. It will also host many events for demonstrating new innovations and prototypes from budding and established inventors. The museum will keep updating itself as and when newer technologies are discovered.
Another interesting aspect of the Museum of the Future is that it will hold simulations and interactive demonstrations so that the general public can be enthralled by the magic of technology.
