A great place to find out about the history of Doha. It took about an hour to read all the information. Nice to be greeted with coffee and water and a good selection of photographs and mock ups of old and developing Doha

If you live in Doha, then it does not take too terribly long before you've run out of things to see and do. ...And that's okay, but be sure to check the Msheireb Enrichment Center. It is reasonably interesting and the location is great (albeit difficult to find parking) and is a good way to spend an 45-60 minutes meandering... More

The premise for this centre is great and there are quite a few models of what the new area may offer when it is complete. There is also a glimpse in to the modern history of Qatar and Doha and perhaps a bit more on this would be welcomed. There is a selection of artefacts but I could not see... More

Interesting stuff but the exhibits are quite small. This is mostly a marketing scheme for the company involved, but it's a cool, free experience.

A small barge at the start of the Corniche in West Bay. Shows you what life used to be like through videos, pictures and old exhibits. Also shows detailed models for the new development by Msheireb and how they are keeping the modern buildings in line with traditional designs.
