Owner description: Set in the MIA Park on the Doha waterfront, the museum building stands out as an architectural gem. Once inside, you will see masterpieces of Islamic art, including metalwork, ceramics, jewellery, woodwork, textiles and glass, collected from three continents and dating from the 7th to the 19th century. Entry to the museum is FREE.

The building built out over the water was fascinating and the display of Islamic art,etc was an eye -opener, especially as it included material from Spain to China.

But did feel uneasy in the male toilet when saw a young male cleaner given a bullying type of push by another much older staff member

Been to this museum many times. The architecture, like the rest of the downtown area, is really stunning and ultra-modern. Even if you are not a museum fan, just walking around this museum is worth the visit. There is also an excellent cafe on the ground floor with panoramic views of the harbor. From what I remember, admittance is free, or very cheap.

The Architecture by IMPEI is awesome , evoking the sense of grandeur .. The audioguide is good. Three great masterpieces stand out in my mind, the jewelled bird, the blue glass jar and the armored horse and kinight! The cafe serves good but pricey food

You cannot come to Qatar and not go to this museum.
This is an eye opener for the Western World.
Please come and see what the Islamic people have pioneered, achieved and struggled to create.
This is all laid out in a beautiful, pristine, contemporary setting that would be the envy of any international city.
I was blown away with the grace, beauty, information and culture on display.
It is a must.
