Following the temporary closure from Monday, March 16, in support of the UAE’s efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, Jameel Arts Centre is now ready to re-open – in line with Dubai Culture museums and government advice – and we are greatly looking forward to welcoming you back.

While Jameel Arts Centre still offers ticketless, free access, under new guidelines visitors are asked to book a two-hour slot in advance of their visit, so to monitor capacity and ensure a comfortable visit that keeps social distancing and hygiene a top priority. In accordance with UAE regulations, visitors and staff are required to wear a face mask and have their temperatures checked before entering the Centre.

The Jameel has set new gallery capacities, delineating the maximum number of visitors per room, monitored by security staff. All Jameel Arts Centre spaces are open to the public with the exception of the prayer rooms and the basement parking. Pre-booking is required to access the Jameel Library.

Please watch this video for more information on how to visit the Jameel and read answers here to FAQs about visits, safety and hygiene measures.
