This museum is alright, it is nothing great. Better museum else where. The structure is good (designed by Pei).

A must-do in Doha. An amazing collection of middle-eastern artefacts. Wonderful craftsmanship and design. The building itself is a work of art. Good cafe, with views across the bay. Also check out the free, monthly Thursday evening concerts (normally between September and May) by members of the Orchestra.

I consider this museum the best sightseeing in Doha. The building is beautiful with its garden of royal palms and there are permanent and itinerant exhibitions. Admission is free. As we visited during the Ramadan period, the museum was open until midnight.

The exhibitions are not very interesting, as the objects are mostly from outside of Qatar. However the building is very interesting and there are some nice views to the West Bay Area. Free access and good parking lot.

The museum itself, with its arcitecture, its surrounding area and park, the outdoor part of the building, and the internals, it is just breath taking. Bring your camera, and you will take the most astonishing photos of your year here. Many of the prospect andbrochure photos of Qatar is taken here. There is also a nice cafe inside with a... More
