The prices for the Dubai Frame have officially been announced and, it’s really not as much as we thought it would be.

In statement to Khaleej Times, Dubai Municipality Director General Hussain Nasser Lootah announced that the entry fee will be AED50 for adults and AED30 for kids – not bad, at all.

He added that entry will be free for people of determination and all kids under the age of three.

Lootah also revealed that although opening date of the Dubai Frame is not yet known, it is still scheduled to open before the end of month.

While we wait for the official opening date, here’s a bit more info about the gold-cladded landmark...

  • The project is worth a staggering AED160 million.
  • It was designed by Fernando Donis and his office DONIS was inspired by the Expo 2020 logo.
  • The frame is a staggering 150 metres high and 93 metres wide, and is located in Zabeel Park.
  • The top of the frame will be a clear glass walkway, which will offer guests an impressive 360 view of the city.
  • The Dubai Frame will showcase both old and new Dubai. “It shows from one side the landmarks and building of Sheikh Zayed Road to symbolize the modern Dubai, while showing from the other side landmarks for Deira, Umm Hurair and Karama areas to symbolize the old Dubai,” a previous Instagram post from Dubai Municipality explains.
  • The project will also feature a gallery and museum both of which, will be located on the ground floor and will aim to highlight the evolution of the city using both video and still imagery.
  • Once the project opens, its tickets will be paperless. Lootah previously told national newspaper, Gulf News that the users smartphone will act as their pass into the already iconic landmark.

We can’t wait.
