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

This is the reason we visited Doha and we were not disappointed. A stunning collection. We noted that audio guides were no longer provided and this may suggest a slackening in standards.

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.

It's a well-maintained museum and the location is also very stunning. Travellers who are visiting Qatar should visit the Qatar national museum. You will find internal fragrance of QATAR
