Cool museum

This museum boasts thousands of antiques from all over the world. The car collection alone is worth the price of admission. One of the most uniquely cool museums I've visited.

To be fair, I spent <1 hour here which was part of a 4-hour tour package. The museum is full of many diverse and interesting things. However, without my guide I wouldn't have understood the significance of some of the artifacts. Seems like a good place to bring a family. I wouldn't recommend driving out here just to visit the...

I was impressed with this museum. There were lots of interesting exhibits. I think children would get a bit bored. The highlight for us was the cheetah outside the museum. Be sure to have a look.

Sheikh Faisal Museum is a must visit for anyone visiting Doha. It is the only one of its kind here and houses a splendid display of Islamic and Middle East Cultural Artifacts. The vintage cars on display in the museum is unique in the region.

Not so easy to get to - taxi or car hire or perhaps an organised trip required. But, well worth a visit. As other reviewers have said there is almost something for everyone here, doors, cars, jewelry, weaponry, art and a well, among many items you would not think to see. A real find in the desert. Allow time to... More

You will never expect such a huge collection of artifacts and traditional things collected in the museum. For sure, you will get amazed. As it is away from the city, most people are not aware of this museum. A must visit in QATAR

A HUGE place, containing anything that caught this Sheikh's fancy, from traditional garments to broken car door handles, and from weapons to empty gum boxes. Recommended only if you have some extra time/money to waste/spare, as (in a city where everything is free) the entry and camera fees are pretty steep (80qar), and it takes almost 2 hours to even...

An amazing museum situated a few miles outside Doha. Absolutely huge, it takes several hours to go round, through a maze of rooms, with the most eclectic collection of exhibits that I have ever seen - agricultural implements, domestic implements, clothing, hospital equipment, swords, guns, cannons, glass, pottery, metalwork, a huge number of motorcycles, cars dating back to 1880 (mostly...
