Dubai's Moving Image Museum is the only museum of its kind in the Middle East. Opened to the public in 2013, this once private collection showcases the progression of visual entertainment from the 1730s through to modern-day digital cinema and features everything from shadow play sets to Magic Lanterns (an early type of image projector). Though many of the exhibits are behind glass the museum also boasts some interactive elements, including the chance to peek into an 18th century Dutch peepbox viewer.
