The museum stands as a fazcinating building with the seaside on the background, so it has a suggestive location. Although his extraordinary architectural style the collection of arts products is basic and not very impressive: many decorated jugs, paintings, tapestry from the middle east.

Really excellent museum. The architecture and setting really highlight the art, which is world-class and impressive. Clearly Qatar opened its checkbook and bought first-rate representative works. There are not huge numbers of artifacts, but instead well chosen ones that stand in for the various themes....More

As one of the few museums like this in the region I made a special effort to go and it was well worth it! The selection of artefacts is impressive and well worth visiting.

This is one of the highlights of any visit to Doha. The building is located off the Corniche, and has wonderful views of the city centre, which are particularly spectacular at night-time. Inside the building has been beautifully and sensitively designed, to be accessible, light,...More

The building is nice, also the view from the building over Doha skyline. The admission is free. But the art exhibited is just boring and average.

The building is lovely and worth the trouble alone - and given this is free, the rest is icing on the cake. The collections are relatively small, but well organised by period or theme, and many of the pieces are stunning examples of craftsmanship. It...More
