New museum openings are a rare occurrence and definitely not something we were expecting to discover in Dubai, so imagine our delight when we first heard about a new museum that is dedicated to the history and technology of the moving image in all its forms.
Housing the collection of a private collector, the Dubai Moving Image Museum is located in Tecom and has just opened its doors to inspire and educate its visitors about the concept of reproducing and capturing movements..
The collection covers different stages in history, with the pieces dating back as far as the 1730’s – and they are all in excellent condition – and moving up to the birth of the motion picture film.
A guided tour is a must, because of its highly informative and interactive nature. It really helps visitors to understand the techniques behind each of the materials and provides an in-depth understanding about how we came to create film and how people have entertained themselves through the years.
There are a number of interactive features and overall a highly enjoyable and different experience. This is definitely a top must-visit when out of towners come into town and want to see something more than the malls.
Admission is 50 AEDDubai Moving Image Museum Tecom – next to MCN Hive Building Tel: +9714-4216679 http://dubaimovingimagemuseum.com/
