Dubai to host Nobel Museum Exhibition for next 10 years
DUBAI// The emirate will host the Nobel Museum Exhibition for the next 10 years following a partnership with the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation.
The agreement comes after the success of a similar exhibition hosted in Dubai last year that attracted thousands of visitors.
The first of a series of annual exhibitions is called Exploring Life: Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine and will be held at Children’s City in Dubai Creek Park from February 21 to March 21.
“The exhibition will help young people understand the contribution of Nobel Laureates in medicine towards serving humanity through breakthroughs in medical and health fields,” said Jamal bin Huwaireb, managing director of MBRF.
“It will also highlight the early Arab and Muslim medical inventions and their vital role in solving medical problems.
“Our aim is to encourage young Arabs to study sciences and aspire to win a Nobel Prize.”
Lars Heikensten, executive director of the Nobel Foundation, welcomed the new partnership and said the exhibitions will focus on all the sciences.
“We are very happy to be working together on a series of exhibitions within these fields for a wide-ranging Arab audience,” he said.
“It is vital to capture the imaginations of young generations in areas where academic settings are still relatively new and show the possibilities of research as a driver of positive social development.”
The Nobel Museum Exhibition will also feature a range of activities and workshops to help enhance the level of scientific research in the region.
The exhibition will be open from 9am to 8pm from Saturday to Thursday and from 3pm to 9pm on Fridays.
