THE TRANSPORT MUSEUM TAKES VISITORS ON A JOURNEY THROUGH THE EVOLUTION OF TRANSPORT IN DUBAI, FROM THE EARLY CAMEL-BACK DAYS OF THE 1940S TO THE MODERN DAY METRO.
Open exclusively for visiting delegations as well as school and university students, the museum boasts antique miniatures and artifacts, along with a host of technologies including interactive screens and an object theatre. The museum also provides a futuristic perspective of transportation systems, narrating the vision that the RTA has for the future transportation infrastructure of the Emirate.
FOG SCREEN PROJECTION
The innovative ‘Fog Screen’ projection screen produces a thin curtain of “dry” fog that serves as a translucent projection screen, displaying images that literally float in the air. Lively animations projected onto the screen depict the various transportation sectors of the RTA, along with their logo.
FUTURE OF TRANSPORT INTERACTIVE SCREEN
An engaging touch screen where visitors can learn about all the various cutting edge technologies that drives the quest for a sustainable and efficient transportation future. From self-driving cars, to jetpacks and delivery drones, the screen is loaded with captivating diagrams and animated info-graphics.
CITY PLANNER GAME
This ‘SimCity’-style game is designed to test visitor’s ability to build different transport networks that meet the growing demands of a modern city. There are limited funds and carbon level to keep in mind, as well as the commute time.
The object theatre shows a brief history of Dubai’s transportation infrastructure as it grew through the decades. Three large projection screens, various scale models and props and a life-size virtual narrator are choreographed together into a captivation multi-media show.
