  • 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.
  • Excellente! missing some texts and details to explain the history of things Good place
  • really hard to understand what they dispalyed
  • Good exhibition but there's a lot of construction on the way
