DUBAI opens a masterpiece : ' Museum of Future '.

Dubai : Dubai opened its Museum of the Future on Tuesday, a structure it touts as the world's most beautiful building.

The museum is a seven-storey hollow silver ellipse decorated with Arabic calligraphy quotes from Dubai's ruler. It takes pride of place on Sheikh Zayed Road, the city's main highway.

The building's striking facade was lit by a colourful laser light show in the evening as crowds gathered outside to catch a glimpse.

It was officially opened later by Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid AI-Maktoum, whose vision of the future has been credited as the driving force behind the museum.

While the museum's contents are yet to be revealed, it will exhibit design and technology innovations, taking the visitors on a ''journey to the year 2071'', organizers said.

Roadside signboards described the museum as the ''most beautiful building on Earth,'' ahead of its gala opening. [AFP]
