What to see
Etihad Museum
1 Jumeirah St

Not known to many, Etihad Museum was established in year 2016 to present contemporary history of the United Arab Emirates to the world. Located in Jumeirah, the museum boasts of a magnificent modern exterior depicting a manuscript. 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. The museum is equipped with all the latest technologies to take visitors through the history of the UAE.

The location of the museum is quite significant as it is the same historical site of the Union House, where, in 1971, the emirate's rulers signed a declaration that marked the formation of the UAE which is now part of the museum complex.

It holds everything from old passports to personal artefacts such as rings, eyeglasses and pocket watches, stamps and letters and other rare items are on display for the public to add dimensions to the story of the rulers of the UAE.

Pavilion One shows a documentary film about the history of the UAE. Pavilion Two houses a panoramic interactive map highlighting the era before the formation of the federation. Pavilion Three showcases an interactive timeline that demonstrates key historical events before the union. Pavilion Four showcases of the meeting between the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum. Pavilion Five provides an interactive guide to the formation of the union. Pavilion Six pays homage to the important moments and challenges confronted the founding fathers before 1971. Pavilion Seven is dedicated to the UAE Constitution and includes the actual declaration itself.

Last but not the least, Pavilion Eight is an open gallery celebrating the new-born nation. Etihad Museum is equipped with a library, an education centre, a temporary exhibition hall and a restaurant.
