Etihad Museum

dynamic 21st century museum, Etihad Museum is focused on inspiring its visitors with the story of the founding of the UAE. The 25,000 m2 landmark is befittingly located at the very place where the UAE was founded in 1971.

The programmes also aim to educate visitors about the nation’s constitution, in particular – the rights, privileges and responsibilities that it bestows upon the people of the UAE.

Finally, external and internal parking spaces have been provided to facilitate visits to the Museum.

Through their drive and determination, they transformed their vision into reality, building a country that constantly challenges the status quo and became a global hub for trade, tourism, real estate, and innovation. DFF was brought to life in 2016 through the continued vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, with the aim of institutionalizing future shaping. Since then, the foundation has launched numerous futuristic initiatives, each contributing to our mission of making Dubai a leading city of the future.
