Well worth a visit if you are visiting Doha. We had a nice walk along the Cornice with amazing views! Had a bite to eat and a coffee at the MIA cafe and then went around the museum.

Beautiful building. Excellent layout. Very interesting. Free admission. A must do when in Doha. We walked along the corniche to get there and that was an added bonus looking at the boats in the harbour.

What you get when you mix a passion to create a world class museum with almost unlimited money. Beautifully done with amazing artefacts and layout. A relaxing insight into the world of Islamic art. And its also beautiful architecture and views. A place to relax

The museum is a MUST TO SEE. By purpose it is a bit separate at to cost across the skyscrapers..... So you have a differentiation between future and past. It represents the Arabic World with all their history and and the artefacts are amazing.... And...More
