Visitors to Expo City Dubai will be able to access all of its flagship pavilions for free on Friday, May 19, to mark International Museum Day.
The International Museum Day celebration includes curated educational programmes and a treasure hunt across seven attractions, in keeping with this year’s theme of “Museums, Sustainability, and Well-being”.
This initiative seeks to encourage as many visitors as possible to experience the potential of museums to influence sustainable development and to ensure that educational spaces are accessible to all.
International Museum Day: Free entry to Expo City Dubai pavilions
The offer includes free access to Alif – The Mobility Pavilion, Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion, The Women’s and Vision Pavilions, as well as each of the three Stories of Nations Pavilions.
In case you choose to drop by, there will be specially crafted educational programs and an exciting treasure hunt happening as well.
Among the planned activities, Terra will screen climate-focused films in collaboration with the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi, as well as host informative tours, storytelling sessions, physical theatre workshops and a ‘tinker table’ for play-based learning.
For inquisitive minds, there will be a Lego workshop at Alif where participants can build robot hands to learn about motors, sensors, and engineering principles. Craft activities will be available for all ages at the Women’s and Vision Pavilions.
Tickets usually cost Dhs50 per person, per pavilion, and the pavilions are open daily from 10am to 6pm.
Residents are offered an exclusive chance to seize this opportunity and delve into the flagship pavilions at Expo City Dubai, where they can uncover the fascinating confluence of museums, sustainability, and well-being.
International Museum Day, on May 18 each year, was established by the International Council of Museums in 1977 and honours a different theme each year.
Expo City Dubai, set to host Cop28 in November, is a blueprint for sustainable urban planning and is committed to protecting the environment, including through programmes that enable visitors to understand their impact on our world and inspire them to play a role in the planet’s preservation.
