Museum had quite a good number of artefacts but we were unfortunate that this was under renovation. The shape of the building is unique and I must admit that Qatar govt is doing a good job in promoting tourism through their infrastructure. This is going to be one of the most frequented by FIFA world cup.

Went here after visiting the Waqif Sooq, fantastic architecture and such a beautiful building. Worth taking five minutes out of your schedule to see this attraction.
