Floating Balloons & An Interactive Universe: Jeddah’s First Digital Art Museum opens June 10th

The new Jeddah Digital Art Museum is almost finished and will open this summer. Located in the Arbaeen Lagoon with a view of Jeddah’s Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this museum is the result of a 10-year partnership between Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Culture and the Japanese art group teamLab.

Called teamLab Borderless, it will be Jeddah’s first digital and interactive art museum. The Ministry of Culture and teamLab announced on April 3, 2024, that the museum is nearly ready and will open on Monday, June 10
