James Bond fans will be able to get a closer look at Scaramanga’s Golden Gun and 007’s Aston Martin DB10 at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai from November 14.

The international touring Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style exhibition will celebrate more than 50 years of the film franchise. It will be situated at the tower’s annex and will run until February 13, 2017.

The Bond spread will take visitors through the craft behind making the popular film series with a display of the iconic sets, gadgets and cars from the James Bond movies.

Some of the unmissable exhibits include the Scaramanga’s Golden Gun from The Man with the Golden Gun, Hollywood actor Daniel Craig’s wardrobe from Casino Royal and the Aston Martin DB10 from Spectre.

Visitors will also get a glimpse of what went on behind-the-scenes, the music and fashion that became an integral part of pop culture over the decades.

The exhibition debuted at the Barbican Centre in London in 2012 and has travelled to Toronto, Shanghai, Melbourne, Moscow, Rotterdam, Madrid, Mexico City and Paris. It will be brought to Dubai in collaboration with Barbican and EON Productions and has been guest-curated by fashion historian Bronwyn Cosgrave and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, and designed by Ab Rogers.

As part of the celebrations, At The Top - Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall and The Dubai Fountain will also be decked out with Bond props and have immersive activities for all to enjoy.

Tickets sales for the exhibition go on sale from Saturday, October 15. To book, visit www.burjkhalifa.ae
