Simply a must visit when in Doha. The museum has free entry for all visits. It has a cafeteria inside as well as a fine dining restaurant. I highly recommend visiting it.

I thoroughly loved the Museum of Islamic Art. Any trip to Doha should include a stop here. The building itself is artwork and architecturally pleasing. The museum is free and laid out so you can walk through the exhibits easily. There were many artifacts but I never felt overwhelmed as everything was displayed well. The museum had an exhibit on...

Showcased artefacts dating all the way back to the 7th century from the middle east, china and india. There were three levels of permanent exhibitions and the exhibitions were well presented. There was an underground tunnel leading from Souk Waqif to the corniche where one needs to walk another 15 mins to reach the Museum.

I was expecting to be bored but if you only see one museum your entire life, then make it this one. The grounds, the scenic views, the interior and exterior design and the exhibits are just must see. they even provide free high speed wifi and this place has no entrance fee either.

At the top floor there is an exhibition of the life & achievements of Muhammed Ali. When you visit the museum around 5 pm you have a great view... More

Truly an outstanding museum in terms of both the design of the building, the collection, and their displays. I wish we would've had more time, but I'm grateful I got to go! Definitely worth going to!
