#1 of 9 in Museums in Qatar
From the impressive collections to the awe-inspiring architecture by I.M. Pei, visitors to Museum of Islamic Art have plenty to look at. The building resembles a pile of boxes inspired by Islamic architecture, surrounded by gardens and paths offering views of the bay and Doha's skyline. The museum's collection includes samples of 1,400 years of jewelry, calligraphy, woodwork, textiles, metalwork, and manuscripts from all over the Islamic world. Within the museum, you'll find a library, gift shop, open prayer rooms, and a restaurant serving French-Mediterranean cuisine.

  • Museum Islamic of Art (MIA) is recommended place to be visited when we have trip in Doha. in this area, you will see any object from another country such as Turkey, India, Bahrain which are related with Islam History. QR 50 should be paid for foreign visitor while person win Qatar ID can be explored this area for free.
  • Just amazing as a collection. You will have a good time and nostalgic feelings if you roam around the museum. The Museum covers range of Islamic historic items. Indians, Turkish, Persian everything related to Oslamic history is here. The Arab sea in from the entrance of the Museum is just heavenly. The bliss is amazing.
  • Very interesting experience. The building itself is quite remarkable. And the exhibition itself was really good and comprehensive.
  • Actually this place is worth 5 stars....BUT.... it is so blessed hard to get to there.... no drop off close to the entrance... be prepared to do some walking in the heat. We were on the hop on hop off... a taxi would be the best option. ... but that is another cost.
  • Pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed this walk through history - $10 per person. Beautifully done and very friendly staff! Got some great photos from the patio/garden.
