I have always been an ardent fan of historical stories. After walking around a bit in the raging sun, the calm atmosphere of Msheireb Enrichment Centre was a welcome relief. I was the only one in the centre, and so had a lot of time to read each and every word on the exhibits. The centre is laid out so... More

An ancient travel back in time, Msheireb Enrichment Center is the sand in an hour glass trip to the old Qatari culture and lifestyle; beautifully illustrated, voiced, articulated and documented. Visit www.Msheireb.com for reservations.

This overwater museum is located on the Corniche next to the Ex Sheraton Hotel. Entrance is free but it is not obvious for everyone that it can be visited. You need maximum half an hour to visit it, but you go out with a better understanding of the Doha of the past, present and future. It displays the mockup of... More

Doha is a city that is changing rapidly and the Msheireb Enrichment provides some fascinating exhibits that showcase Doha's past. It also explains the architectural concepts that are being used at the new Downtown Doha and how these draw upon the traditions of the past. The main downside of this facility is that it has fairly restricted opening hours.

A small, free museum showing old photographs of Doha with a few artifacts. It's interesting to see how the city has developed over the last 50 years, but you can cover most of the museum part in 10 minutes. The exhibition is clearly sponsored by the developer of the Msheireb project (located next to Souk Waqif) as the second half... More

You can't miss this, particularly if you enjoy architecture. Msheireb is the key state sponsored urban renewal development project. It's a world class project with impressive adoption of modern green building and historical Qatari design practices. The interactive displays do a remarkable job telling the project and Qatar's development narrative.

I thought this was going to be more of a place to learn about Qatari culture and history, really it is a glorified presentation of a real estate development in downtown. They do have a pretty high tec to scale model that is lite below from a screen.
