He added: ”The Museum of the Future will be an incubator for ideas and real designs, a driver for innovation and a global destination for inventors and entrepreneurs.”

The museum’s motto, “See the future, create the future” is designed to reflect a new approach to innovation. The institution is intended to use design, technology prototyping and foresight to create real examples of change.

It is set to be the first of its kind and will represent a “leading example of entrepreneurial governments embracing change and creating futuristic visions for a better world”.

“The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it. Here in the UAE we think differently. While others try to predict the future, we create it,” said Sheikh Mohammed.
