This is a must not miss. The museum holds a hold host of interesting artefacts that should interest everybody from collector cars to full scale boats. Well worth spending an afternoon exploring
It was dificult to find the route but the collection is very interesting It needs more labels on each piece to understands more the use, where was it found and date .
In all my travels this is the most wonderful museum I have ever been at, and I intend to go back next time I am here. I especially loved the cars, and saw many i remember from my youth. I didn't see a 1969 Chevy Impala, my favorite, but then I didn't get to finish looking in the big car room, maybe there was one there. If not, you need one! :) But truly thank you Mr. Al-Thani.
Amazing vintage cars and cloths. Epic collection. More than 16000 items in a modern constructed building. Its very awfuller to see the items from 16th and 17th centuries. I loved it.
it is a great place to be...nice personal collection...also visit stud farm, ostrich farm and green patch behind the museum...lots of peacock there.
Reviews and pics are great. I am anxious to visit it today. Seems excellent work and collection.
