2022 is the year of museum architecture, as new museums or extensions open around the globe. Compiled from DW, here is a lowdown of the 5 newly opened museums across the world, and those that will start welcoming visitors in the coming months.

1.- Nasjonalmuseet, Norway.

On June 11, 2022, the new Norwegian National Museum, Nasjonalmuseet, opened in Oslo. With more than 5,000 works, it is the largest art museum in the Nordic region.

The collection contains objects from different centuries, spanning design, architecture and the arts -including '' The Scream '' by Edvard Munch. It also holds the largest art library and archive in northern Europe.

2.- Museum of the Future, Dubai.

Dubai, which is not exactly short of superlatives, added a new highlight on February 22. The oval building is designed to resemble an eye through which visitors can take a look into the future.

On seven floors, visitors can experience exhibitions of the topic of the future. They focus on artificial intelligence, space research, adaptation to climate change and living in the future.

3.- Musee de Cluny, France 

The Musee de Cluny Middle Ages museum in Paris, located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, was closed for many years.

In May, it reopened to the public. The exhibition was redesigned and a new entrance building was added. Built over the ruins of the former Roman thermal bath complex, it blends discreetly into the existing ensemble. It is entirely barrier-free.

4.- Hong Kong Palace Museum, Hong Kong

After five years, the Hong Kong's Palace Museum is expected to in July 2022 in the new cultural district of West Kowloon on the waterfront of Victoria Harbour.

Around 900 traditional Chinese exhibits, such as imperial treasures and rare books, will be displayed there - as well as multimedia projects. These will be presented in nine galleries covering 30,500 square meters [328,000 square feet].

5.- Istanbul Modern, Turkey

After Turkey's first museum of modern and contemporary art opened in Istanbul's Karakoy waterfront in 2004, it was moved to another complex. Now, it will move into a building designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano.

It will also house a library, a design boutique, a cinema and event spaces.
