  • So called museum. Just building and space. Nothing much to offer.
  • The ongoing Qatar national museum is expected to be one of the most beautiful landmarks in the world. It is the exceptional, breathtaking look of interlocking disc design. Expecting to experience.
  • Qatar is a very nice place and Museum situated in the sea side beuatiful
  • Until it opens there is no knowing what this museum is going to be like. But the architecture is stunning, and for that I'm giving it 5 stars.
  • This place was really awesome! Now they're constructing new museum, and the architecture and engineering looks stunning. Waiting for its completion!
