Well-curated collection of Islamic Art; from paintings, to sculpture, photography and many others. You can easily spend half your day here without getting bored. Plus, there's a nice cafe on the ground floor, too!

Building was designed by IM Pei and is gorgeous and has lovely views of the bay. There is a cafeteria and gift shop and bathrooms on the main floor. The next two floors have the main exhibits; they are displayed very nicely and in such small quantity that we did not feel overwhelmed to look at everything. It seems that... More

For sure this is a place worth to visit. The building itself is beautiful and also the area around. After visiting very interesting exhibitions you can go for a walk on Corniche - depends on the season - in summer too hot, but winter time is perfect. For sure I am going to visit there again.

This is a landmark building in Qatar which is my first stop when showing visitors around Doha. It is a beautiful building with amazing views of the city and unique collection of artifacts. It is free, well organized, beautiful inside and outside and it is air-conditioned. My favorite activity is to have a light supper at the lobby restaurant and... More

The MIA promises its visitors an amazing experience from the moment you step into its magical lobby, it combines history and contemporary architecture in a magical ambience. The view is stunning. While there, enjoy a coffee in the lobby cafe whilst drinking in the sea view. For those not on a budget, I would recommend IDAM restaurant. An out of... More

A beautiful building before you even get in. There is a lot to see and we did one floor this time, will go back to see the others another time which is possible because it is free. I don't like heights so found it difficult going up the sweeping staircase and impossible to use the 'bridges' in the building but... More

The Museum is one of the first places you should visit when you come to Doha. Beside its collection of islamic culture, the building itself is amazing and beautiful. The view form museum is great, so you will take one of your best photos here.
