A nice piece of artwork, a nice museum with often special galleries. The entry is for free except for the temperary expositions. The view over Doha skyline is also nice from inside the building.

If you've been to France or Italy (or any metropolitan city in Europe), this museum will be disappointing. Yes, there are some interesting pieces, but everything is very similar and very well spaced out. The architecture is pretty cool. If, however, you're looking for something a little different than what you do on a normal weekend (especially if you live... More

This is fantastic architecture inside and out, it well laid out inside with some beautiful pieces from the past, my favourite is the central lights with the stairs going up towards it. There is also a fabulous cafe and restaurant in it.

The museum as absolutely beautiful and offers a nice view of the Doha skyline. Art collection was far more interesting than I was expecting. It seemed that each room was more interesting than the previous. Highly recommend.

Just another gallery. Nothing there for me except from the views from the coffee shop on the ground floor. Shame.

The Museum of Islamic Art is a must see for any visitor to Doha. The building and its approaches are impressive and the information and knowledge to be gained within shed a real insight into the history of the region.

This is a great place to be in the cooler months. The view of the sea, the park and museum are fantastic, well maintained. Its the perfect place for a date, stroll, jog, picnic, or quiet time or to meet with friends and just chill out.
