As some others have described the building itself is special - so even if you don't have time to visit take a drive by to appreciate the true splendor of the building. But if at all possible make the time to visits the exhibition which is stocked full o amazing pieces in a fantastic setting

The Museum of Islamic Art in Doha is a very ncie place to visit for Muslims and not Muslims. Its a free attraction with a self guided tour inside. The place is very very well designed and implemented. I would give 2 hours for the museum. The cafe has a great view of Doha landscape.

The architecture of the building is awesome and the museum cafe is catchy. Museum collection is mainly Turkish, Iranian, Syrian and some Indian. One can easily understand the concept and it is worth a visit with no fee....You will be surprised by the cafe lounge they have ..

For those living in Doha this must be a haven of quality. Unlike the facade of quality applied to most of Doha, the Museum is quality through and through - from the building's exterior to the interior to the displays themselves.

This is not so much an art museum than it is a history museum. All the items on display are centuries old which was a pleasant surprise for me. Entry as well as the audio guide are free, so cost is not an excuse not to go. Apart from the items on display, the building itself is a huge part... More
