Owner description: Mathaf ('museum' in Arabic) is a new institution dedicated to Arab culture and creativity opened in Doha December 2010. Located near Education City, the museum is home to a permanent collection offering a unique and comprehensive overview of modern Arab art, and is poised to become a vital centre for dialogue and scholarship in the region.

When we lived in Doha my daughter and I regularly went to Mathaf's Family Fridays. These are free sessions run by friendly and knowledgeable members of the Mathaf team for children. Depending on the subject they would get the kids to sit in front of a painting and look and talk about it; get them drawing and thinking. They have very well equipped studios where the children can create their own masterpiece. Superb. Only in Doha :)

Such an interesting place. The collection presented - or was it an exhibition- was rather exceptional. One regret : no photographies allowed, but no cards to buy at the end ... ! The boutique is merely "poor".
very positive: the free shuttle bus running between thuis museum and the Museum of Islamic art - as the two are quite a long drive from each other.

This little gem tucked away in an obscure corner of the city has the most amazing permanent gallery looking at the influences and processes of acclaimed middle eastern artists. I could have spent hours and hours here.

Unpretentious and artwork-friendly architecture, excellent exhibitions, welcoming staff.
At the moment a bit in the middle of nowhere and the café could be improved

Fine and huge collection of contemporary art. Excellent temporary exhibitions. Definitely worth a visit ! Workshops and courses could be of interest to children and adults ! Don't miss this museum. The conversion of the building into a museum is very interesting and inspirational. Hope it does not relocate in the future.
