12:00 PM UAE museums then and now: The history of museum development in the UAE

With shifting demographics, evolving visitor expectations and ever-escalating technologies, museum designers face a number of challenges. The end goal is to lead to a richer and more memorable visitor experience that encourages visitors to become museum advocates, however, conflicting goals and strategies can make this a challenge to achieve.
This presentation will highlight the most significant museum establishments in the UAE over the past 4 decades leading up to the most recent high-profile museums soon to open in the UAE and recognise what it takes to be the number one museum attraction.
