This is the third in a major exhibition series leading  up to the 2016  opening of the Zayed National Museum. Discover 100 of the world’s most historically compelling objects capturing the world’s history and, within it, the Middle East’s significant role.

Held in collaboration with the British Museum, this is the first time the popular BBC series has been shown as an exhibition. Visitors are invited to travel back in time and across the globe to discover a history of humanity.

The exhibition will run for 100 days with a full, associated public programme of workshops, tours and seminars. An opening panel discussion - ‘Unlocking Objects’ – will feature British Museum Director Neil MacGregor, on April 22 at 6.30pm.
