Stunning place to visit! The entire area is new and not everything is open yet. However, the museum holds some very, very interesting items that explain the history of Qatar very well. Many things surprised me there and I will definitely visit this place again!

It shows the way how Qatar traditional life was, the old houses in the heart of Qatar transports you to the country origen and the exhibitions shows the history, the revolution that discovering petrol brought to the country.
