Set in the MIA Park on the Doha waterfront, the museum building stands out as an architectural gem. Once inside, you will see masterpieces of Islamic art, including metalwork, ceramics, jewellery, woodwork, textiles and glass, collected from three...more

The museum, like many buildings in Doha, has amazing architecture. The collection was full of beautiful things, though I feel that someone with more knowledge of Islamic art would have gotten more out of it than I did. They had a collection of astrolabes which...More
We'd heard good things & weren't disappointed. On a hot day it is refreshingly cool inside. And free! Free is always good. The building architecture is interesting both inside & outside. It was interesting to see a great range of ceramics, fabrics, manuscripts, metalwork, glasswork...More

It is a place that you must go when you are in Doha. Would suggest to go during sunset and stay until when it gets dark. You can see very good night view of Doha fr this museum. The Souq is only 10min away by...More
the exterior is beautiful, designed by the same architect who designed the Louvre. Pretty location on the waterfront with a view looking out to sky scrapers. We loved the collection of art, jewellery, rugs, bowls etc and could have spent much longer there.

I would go and visit the museum only for the architecture is the building. It’s amazing. In regard to the collection, it is very wide and educational. I would say it’s huge collection of art from Islamic countries and Muslim contexts.

Yes, I believe they are. I noticed a number of people taking photographs and there were no signs saying no photography. Everyone today has phones that act as cameras anyway, so I imagine it would be difficult to prevent. Also the internal architecture is super and I know they are very proud of the IM Pi design, understandably so.
