A ‘real-life ironman’ is flying around Dubai, delivering invites to the opening of the world’s most beautiful building: The Museum of the Future. The dazzling building that glitters majestically along the arterial Sheikh Zayed Road opens to the world today, 22.2.22.

After its opening ceremony on February 22, the museum will receive visitors starting from February 23.

Entry tickets to the future are priced at Dh145, with children, people of determination and Emirati senior citizens entering for free.

The Arabic calligraphy-infused exterior of the building has been wowing people from around the world, but from the glimpses we have seen, the interior is equally impressive.

The museum is powered by the latest technologies of virtual and augmented reality and artificial intelligence and offers multi-sensory experiences.

The museum’s official website says each floor is like a “film set from a future that you can inhabit, explore and interact with”.

According to the website, here are the experiences you will find inside:
