Etihad (Union) Museum
This iconic and unique 25,000-square metre landmark in the Jumeirah district of Dubai has opened beside Union House – where the agreement establishing the United Arab Emirates federation in 1971 was signed.
The entrance to the Etihad Museum’s new permanent pavilion is designed in the shape of a manuscript, with seven columns that emulate the pens used to sign the 1971 agreement. The identity of the museum is also inspired by the colours of the UAE national flag, the federal identity and the seven emirates.
The Etihad Museum exhibits the story of the nation’s development from pre-union to more recent times. Its aim is to become a cultural beacon to educate the UAE’s citizens, residents and visitors about the country’s modern history - including the rapid pace of development that has taken place and its grand achievements along the way.
