Visitors can get a preview of some of the attractions at the Expo 2020 Dubai legacy site this week, before it officially opens to the public in October.
Two significant pavilions, Mobility (Alif) and Sustainability (Terra), will be accessible to the general public on September 1 in advance of Expo City Dubai’s official inauguration on October 1.
On September 1, Garden in the Sky, a rotating observation tower with a height of 55 meters and 360-degree views, will also open. Tickets cost $10.
“Terra will encourage visitors to re-evaluate their relationship with the environment through an immersive journey through ocean and forest, while Alif will transport explorers through time and across new horizons to discover how mobility has driven human progress throughout history,” the Expo statement read.
The Women’s Pavilion, a water feature, the Vision Pavilion, and other Expo 2020 attractions will open in October.
The Expo 2020 Dubai Museum, a new addition reflecting the history and significance of World Expos and honoring the achievement of Expo 2020 Dubai, will be converted from the Opportunity Pavilion, according to a statement from the Expo.
While admittance to the new city will be free, $15 per person tickets are required to enter the pavilions.
After the exhibition concludes in March 2021, it was already announced that the location of Expo 2020 would be transformed into a smart city without cars. There will be significant businesses and people living in the new city.
