An interactive digital museum in Jeddah is soon going to be set up under the collaboration of its Ministry of Culture and TeamLab International, a Japanese Digital Art Group.

The museum will be established by the beginning of 2023, based on a ten-year agreement between the ministry and TeamLab.

TeamLab International

The Japanese TeamLab is well known for its designs in museums and digital shows that use digital technology and precise software to give visitors a special emotional experience. It has established the world’s first digital museum, renowned for its colourful, futuristic digital art installations and photo opportunities.

The team has achieved global success through major museums in Tokyo and Shanghai and has been able to attract the highest number of visitors from around the world.

The Mori Building Digital Art Museum is an enthralling digital art museum in Tokyo by the TeamLab.

The TeamLab team is set to present a new plan for the museum, showcasing innovative inventions that have never been seen before with technology developed specially for the new museum.

It will also provide a section for the children, where they get to enjoy a unique journey which combines arts and science into a creative mixture.

The new initiative of the ministry is in line with its efforts to offer the country the latest artistic events of international standards and to provide innovative choices of high quality to local audiences in various Saudi regions.

Also, the ministry plans to have a similar museum at Riyadh at a later period where they aim to provide more space for the public who wish to attend the events.

Specialized museums are among the first package of initiatives, while upcoming plans include museums that invest in technology and innovative creative arts as revealed by the ministry during the inaugural ceremony of its activities held in March 2019.
