Etihad Museum

A Contemporary History of the UAE

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 1, the museum offers a series of interactive pavilions where visitors can explore the UAE’s history – with particular emphasis on the significant period between 1968 and 1974 –  through photos, films and more.

At the museum, visitors can discover the UAE’s rich heritage about life before the country’s founding fathers signed the treaty that unified the seven emirates and the UAE’s extraordinary economic development.

Spread over 25,000 square metres, the museum is located on the same historical site of the Union House, the very place where the constitution of the UAE was signed in 1971 to establish its independence, marking the first federation of the Arab world.

Designed by Canadian architects Moriyama and Teshima, the unique curved white roof of the museum was inspired by the shape of the constitution, and is adorned with seven columns meant to symbolise the pens used to sign the original agreement.

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