This place was not designed to be an attraction but because it in the heart of the city it looks so. It a mosque that was built to look like an old building in Iraq calles samiraa. Any way its main job in doha is to inform and educate non muslims about islam. Books are printed in many languages and... More

Wow I didn't know that is certainly the feeling that I left with after visiting as part of their Friday mosque experience. Information boards are educational, interesting and relevant some of today's opinions on the Muslim religion.

Exhibit was well done. Only one floor open. I would like to have someone to speak to during or after the tour.

We didn't go in. From all accounts it is great, however we just loved the view from the outside. The spiral tower is a landmark to enjoy in both day and night, and a bit of a locational beacon when you are in the souq!

This is good place to visit. We were met by a member of staff who gave us the option of a talk on the background to Islam. This was very interesting and not too intense. The wall displays are well laid out and easy to follow. At the end of our visit my wife and I were taken into the... More

wonderful, peaceful and 'a must' place in Doha opens your horizons and widens the knowledge, altho a bit one-sided point of view on history

A must See in Doha, Do not miss out on the nice Cafe with the sea view. There is a "Friday" market on Saturdays on the grass/parking area. Enjoy.

An iconic building in Doha and stands out both in the day and night. Inside there is a space aimed at educating nonMuslims about Islam - some interesting info, but I was expecting more to be honest. I understand on certain days they organise mosque tours and traditional meals but we did not experience any of that. Free entry.
