Experience Dubai with us

On the outside, it looks like a space-age moon base! All sweeping lines and curves, a 21st Century building for a 21st Century city. Inside, the Etihad Museum allows you to unlock the present, the past and perhaps even the future! This is a heritage treat, from social to political, cultural to scientific. The Etihad Museum will inspire all visitors who enter its space-age walls. This is an informative experience that will take you away from the shopping and energy of the Souks — a welcome break, worth taking.

High demand, seasonal availability and unexpected closures can be the reason. We're working on getting it up and running. Meanwhile, you can search for other activities on our website. We don’t want you to leave disappointed!
