Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) has announced that Etihad Museum has won top honours at The Leading Culture Destinations Awards 2017 in London.
The museum won the Best New Museum in the Middle East and Africa award and placed first runner-up in the Best Museum Architecture of the Year category.
Etihad Museum tells the story of one of the most significant moments in the UAE’s timeline — the birth of the nation with the 1971 Union Agreement — through the eyes of the Founding Fathers.
The award was received by Dubai Culture, which manages Etihad Museum, and Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), which was responsible for the museum’s design and construction.
The facilitation took place during a ceremony on September 29 in London.
