After five years of waiting the city’s already iconic landmark, the Dubai Frame, has finally opened to the public.

The AED160 million project officially opened yesterday, January 1, with hundreds flocking to get a look at the gold-cladded structure.

If you’d like to join in on the fun, here’s what you need to know…

  • Ticket prices start at AED50 per adult and AED20 per child aged between three and 12.  Those over the age of 60 as well as people of determination along with two companions will be granted free entry.
  • The Dubai Frame will be open daily from 10am to 7pm.

Right, now that that’s sorted, here’s a bit more info on the landmark…

  • The Dubai Frame was designed by Fernando Donis and his office DONIS and 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 features a clear glass walkway, which offers guests an impressive 360 view of the city.
  • The Dubai Frame showcases 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 also features a gallery and museum both of which, are located on the ground floor and aim to highlight the evolution of the city using both video and still imagery – this can be seen in the video below.
