The Road Traffic Authority has confirmed the final design and main components of the Union Museum, to be constructed at the Union House that saw the signing of the document announcing the formation of the UAE federation.
The design of the museum is inspired by portraits of Their Highnesses the Sheikhs signing the constitution of the UAE on 2 December 1971.
The writing pen and document containing the provisions of the constitution have been used as key elements in the imposing structures of the museum.
Mattar Al Tayer, chairman of the board and executive director of the RTA, said: “The Union House building comprises eight sections; Section 1 comprises an educational museum, and Section 2 spotlights the story of the neighbourhood during the pre-union era along with the life patterns of populace in various environments.
“Section 3 highlights the roadmap leading to the formation of the union together with the key local, regional and international events in that period. Section 4 focuses on the blueprints of the union epitomised in the studious efforts of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, whereas Section 5 presents information about citing key factors prompting the founders to form the federation.
“Section 6 narrates the details of establishing the federation state, Section 7 is devoted to the Constitution of the UAE, and Section 8 sheds light on the achievements made since the formation of the Union.”
