So interesting

history background of museum

This museum houses exhibits relating to the history of the United Arab Emirates. This is a completely new country, and therefore the museum is very modern, grandiose, interactive. The building was built in the form of a folded sheet of paper, which is supported by 7 columns in the form of pens for writing in honor of 7 emirates who decided to be one country. Twice a day you can visit the palace, in which in 1971 an agreement was signed on the formation of the country, accompanied by a guide. The museum is interesting for those interested in the history of the gulf countries.

Description:

Discover the contemporary history of the United Arab Emirates at Dubai’s latest cultural offering – the Etihad Museum.

In a magnificent new building located in Jumeirah, the museum offers a series of interactive pavilions where visitors can explore the UAE’s history.

Through photos, films and more, see how the country has developed throughout time, especially between 1968 and 1974.

At Etihad Museum, visitors can discover the UAE’s rich heritage about life before the treaty that unified the seven emirates. There’s no better place to gain insight into the UAE’s extraordinary economic development since its independence as the first federation in the Arab world.

Spread over 25,000sqm, the museum is located on the same historical site of the Union House, the very place where the constitution was signed in 1971.

Designed by Canadian architects Moriyama and Teshima, the unique curved white roof of the museum was inspired by the shape of the constitution. It’s also adorned with seven columns, which symbolise the pens used to sign the agreement.

Etihad Museum is equipped with a library, an education centre, a temporary exhibition hall and a restaurant.
