“worth a visit”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We went here because there was a boat show on one night. it was great being able to go on the moored replica boats. I'm not really sure how much there is usually to see but the boats were interesting and they had some displays about pearl fishing etc. If you want to understand more about Qatar before oil then its worth a visit.

“The Spot to Meet and Experience the World Cultures.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

It is a lovely place, the largest and most multidimensional cultural project of Qatar and its name derived from the oldest reference designated for the Qatar Peninsula in geographic and historical maps. It is a meeting place for people to experience the world cultures. In other words it is a place where the grace of the past meets the splendor of the future.

The imposing outdoor (Roman style) Amphitheatre is I guess the Jewel of Katara.
There are beautiful theatres, concert halls, trendy restaurants, exhibition galleries, -most of them are free to public, and the list goes on.

It is a nice area for a stroll or getting to the beach.
The 2nd Traditional Dhow Festival takes place these days (13th – 17th November.
