  • New experience. Easy way to get there is with Doha Big 🚌. Some sculpture outside the building. The cafe have good salad. Otherwise won't recommend to purposely drive all the way.
  • nice museum - there's a free shuttle that takes you between here and the museum of islamic art - so don't be put off by it's location.
  • Great art gallery with a big selection of art pieces starting from the installations outside the building. You could be forgiven for thinking you've gone the wrong way when driving there since there's a lot of construction work going on with the Education City but you are going the right way most likely! Inside the staff are friendly as in all Doha museums and entry is free.
  • Difficult to reach but deserves a visit
  • Excellente! missing some texts and details to explain the history of things Good place
