At a distance of 5 km from Dubai Museum and 10 km from Dubai International Airport, Dubai Frame is an iconic structure located in Zabeel Park in Dubai. It is the UAE's latest cultural landmark and among the must-visit Dubai Tourist Places.

Rising 150 m from Dubai's Zabeel Park, the Dubai Frame is the largest picture frame in the world. This impressive feat of engineering opened to the public on 1st January 2018, adding another point of interest to Dubai's already awe-inspiring skyline. The structure connects Dubai's rich past with its magnificent present. The project has not come without controversy, however - last year, it was revealed that the design may have been used without the consent of its original architect.

It consists of two 150 m towers connected at the top by a 93 m bridge- the Sky Deck. The exterior is clad with stainless steel sheets. The sheets are coated with titanium nitride, giving a golden appearance to the exterior. At the base of the frame, there's a pleasant landscaped area with fountains. Upon entering the Dubai Frame, visitors pass through security. The first exhibit reached is the Old Dubai Gallery on the mezzanine level. Multimedia exhibits tell the story of the evolution of the city from its modest beginnings as a fishing village to the modern city of the present era. Also on the mezzanine level is a fantastic piece of modern art depicting the wings of a falcon- the national bird of the UAE. Visitors then travel in a lift to the Sky Deck, which features glass-floored walkways and full-height views out to the old city of Deira to the north and the skyscrapers of Sheikh Zayed Road toward the south. The final attraction is the Future Dubai Gallery in which the exhibits depict how the city is envisaged 50 years from now.
