DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - The flashy Gulf city with a skyline that looks like something out of a science fiction movie is embracing its love of all things new with plans for a “Museum of the Future.”

Emirati Minister of Cabinet Affairs Mohammed al-Gergawi told reporters Wednesday the museum in Dubai will showcase innovations in design and technology, in fields such as transportation, health and education.

The $136 million project is expected to open in 2017. The curving, oblong - and of course futuristic-looking - building will feature poetry written by the Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is also the Emirati prime minister.

Al-Gergawi said the museum aims to change its exhibits every six months to keep pace with changing technology, with a goal “to always be 10 years ahead of today.”
