The progression of science and the art of entertainment have always run side by side, ultimately culminating with the birth of the motion picture film. The Dubai Moving Image Museum showcases this progression, exhibiting the development of visual entertainment from its inception to the birth of modern-day cinema.

The museum houses the private collection of Mr. Akram Miknas, which consists of over 350 original moving image antiques dating back from the 1700s to the twentieth century. It is the only museum of its kind in the Middle East and Asia.

The Dubai Moving Image Museum is unique not only in its subject matter and location, but in the overall experience for visitors. Throughout the museum, visitors will find numerous interactive features, allowing for guests of all ages to fully experience the rich history of the moving image by viewing and interacting with objects such as peeping into an eighteenth century Dutch peepbox viewer, or turning the reel of an early twentieth century mutoscope to see the flicker effect!
