Picture perfect

The largest picture frame in the world may be too big for your polaroids, but you’ll find a way to forgive it. Stare from the bottom at its monolithic enormity or wave at the ants below from its 150-meter-tall viewing platform - the Dubai Frame has a way of putting things out of perspective.
Zip up the elevator to the viewing gallery for more than a spectacular view, as augmented reality screens allow you to locate the city’s landmark with ease. Fly back down again to learn about the rapid development of the city in the Old Gallery, a testament to the past, present, and future of Dubai.

One more time, from the top

It doesn’t get more iconic than this. If you haven’t already, then it should be at the very top of your bucket list, right above ‘Win the Lottery’ and ‘Create a Loving Family’. The Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest building (by quite a long way) and you can stand right at the top of it. It may sound simple, but it really is a marvel to behold.

Slide up to the 124th floor of this iconic building in an elevator in 47 seconds and enjoy breathtaking views of the city, the golden desert, and the Persian Gulf. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide unobstructed views of the Dubai skyline and create great opportunities for photos to make your followers green with jealousy.

Embrace the Emirate

Al Shindagha Museum tells the story of the rich cultural heritage of Dubai, the proud past, and Emirati traditions. It’s a world-class heritage museum committed to education, exploration, and celebration of culture.
There’s something for everyone here at one of the most renowned cultural and historical sites in Dubai. Virtual Reality headsets and interactive displays are perfect for children, while adults can have their perceptions of the area blown away by the tangible and intangible notions of the UAE as a whole.

Future fortunes

The Museum of the Future is the first attraction of its kind. Built to transform the very perception of the future as we know it, the unique structure accommodates several immersive futuristic environments that aim to position visitors in an empowering version of the future.

No more dusty artifacts from some person who's been dead for a thousand years (yawn!). Look forward to a time where, hopefully, all buildings will look as mind-boggling as this one.

Lesser-known, but nowhere near underground

Rise 220 meters above the ground for a jaw-dropping view of Dubai from the Sky Views Observatory. During the panoramic elevator ride, you’ll be able to take in the sights and sounds before being able to take your time from the observatory.
See the Burj Khalifa from the outside as well as sweeping views of many of the city’s other stunning landmarks. The enormous windows enable a sense that you can reach out and touch the world around you. Luckily, when you’re that high up, they also prevent you from trying.
