The latest addition to the list of Dubai’s spectacles, Dubai Frame takes you on ride to Dubai’s past, present and future. This 150 meter tall eye-catching mega structure officially opened on 1st January, 2018 and is much more than a selfie and photography subject. Dubai Frame has welcomed more than a million visitors ever since its opening, which makes it one of the must visit places in Dubai.
Here’s everything you should know about this famous landmark.
Dubai Frame opens every day from 9 am to 9 pm. The best time to visit the frame is during evening to get some spectacular views of the city from the sky deck.
The world’s largest picture frame that adorns a striking exterior is 150 meters tall and 93 meters wide. The shiny golden cladding with honeycomb design gives it a distinct appeal and symbolizes the upcoming Dubai Expo 2020.
The first thing you will see after entering the Frame is a virtual exhibition that tells you about the Dubai Frame, which is followed by a little museum, the Past Dubai Gallery. Take a look at Dubai’s past when it used to be a small fishing village; all of which is displayed using really cool projections.
Exit the museum to board a high speed elevator that will take you to the Frame’s top to view Dubai’s glorious present.
360 ° View of Dubai
Gaze at the sweeping panoramic view of Dubai from the viewing gallery of Dubai Frame. The glass bridge at top connects the two columns of the frame and provides jaw-dropping views of the 150 meters drop. The Frame is strategically built to show two different perspectives of present Dubai. While you can behold the sight of new Dubai’s glittering landscape studded with skyscrapers on the north side of the gallery, the other side presents a view of Old Dubai and the Dubai Creek.
Into Dubai’s Future
After stepping out of the viewing gallery, you will be taken back to the lower section of the Frame for a walk into the future. Enter a tunnel equipped with virtual lighting that shows how Dubai will look like in the next 50 years. The sophisticated projections and sound effects make the walk through this tunnel a breathtaking experience.
After completing the walk in this virtual time vortex, you will be ushered towards a souvenir shop. Buy a Dubai Frame replica, t-shirts, caps, mugs, and more for yourself or for your loved ones as your visit to the Dubai Frame ends.
