It's very interesting place if you have couple of hours waiting time in Doha airport. The taxi should cost around $8, or you can walk for about 20 minutes. Around there is a boulevalrd with only one restaurant (serving just tea, coffee and sandwiches).

The building of the museum is really nice. It worth to go there and take pictures outside and inside. However the exhibitions are usually really boring, but you can see it for free.

The architecture of the building itself is worth the visit but inside the galleries have a very diverse range of exhibits and information detailing the evolution of the various art forms in this quite unique country

Visited with my son when he was on a visit to Doha recently. I have lived here for five years and this is the first time I have visited. The building is a great piece of architecture and the exhibit's are well displayed and if like me you like history very well worth seeing

A very nice experience. We visited many times with kids, friends... If you have friends who come to visit you in Qatar, especially in summer time, you can go to the museum.
