  • Mathaf included in Qatar's Museum, which exhibits the works of modern art, both in the form of painting, sculpture, and other forms. Visitors are free, and there is also a free shuttle service to the Museum of Islamic Art in the middle of the city, given the location of the museum is rather remote.
