Paying homage to the inspirational event that showcased global collaboration and innovation, the Expo 2020 Dubai Museum offers a comprehensive journey through the World Expo project.

It celebrates the scale, spectacle, and significance of Expo 2020 while acknowledging its impact and ongoing legacy.

Guided tours are available every 30 minutes, and the museum, situated in the Opportunity District, features a shop offering Expo 2020 memorabilia, including the opportunity to collect more country stamps in Expo "passports," an Expo 2020 library, and rentable meeting spaces.

Beginning May 20, the museum will be included in Expo City's one-day Attractions Pass, priced at Dh120. Alternatively, a combined ticket for the Expo 2020 Museum and the three Stories of Nations exhibits is available at Dh50 for ages 12 and above, Dh40 for children aged 4 to 11, and free for children aged 3 and under.
