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.

In terms of location, this is this by far the hardest museum u could possibly find on the map. So just make sure where it is before going. Soecially if ur using karwa.
Parking is available.
Meseum organazation and management is excellent.
Meseum content is more like huge commisioned/or not exhibitions rather than collection.
Highly recommend

I had an internship at mathaf and this was my first thing to have with modern or contemporary art. The place is very unique and the experience you get will change with every new exhibition. The people working there are really keen to be the best and to provide the best experience to the visitors. Definitely worth visiting even if you have never been to a modern art museum before.

Mathaf Museum is a museum of contemporary art, with a very interesting collection of modern artworks, inspiring, some quite odd and mostly quite sparse. Great cafe and a souvenir shop. The museum is quite away from the main tourist sites and hotels, but there is a cool free bus running between Museum of Islamic Art and Mathaf. Definitely worth a visit.
