New attractions at Expo City

Three new exhibitions were unveiled last week at Expo City Dubai, aimed at drawing crowds back to relive their memories of the world’s fair.

The pavilions, called the Stories of Nations, are spread across the three districts within the site ― Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.

Visitors can explore memorabilia that includes sculptures, musical instruments and digital exhibits from more than 200 nations and organisations that took part in the six-month-long Expo 2020 Dubai.

The displays vary from showcasing wooden poles used in the Swedish pavilion, replicas of the swings that visitors used in the German pavilion, to a large colourful model of a turtle from the Comoro Islands made from recycled plastic bags, in the Sustainability section exhibits.

A massive circular wooden seat built from pine wood is a memory from the Austrian pavilion, a richly decorated cart with red and green sequins from Myanmar and a harp from Columbia are part of the Opportunity exhibition.
