  • I didn't believe in this museum due to many things. Is a vast and rich collection. Has it all, the part of cars, furniture, rugs are beautiful. Very interesting. Gets a little away from Doha but drive you spend 50minutos. Has a value of 15ryals entry and for taking pictures pays 50 ryals. Next to the Museum you can see the Palm trees of dates and even eat some taken. Ask about the Oryx that are also close, worth, are beautiful!

  • Great Place. Nicely maintained Museum. This one is a private Museum. Lot of artefacts available to see. Good collection of Vintage Vehicles are also present in this Museum.
  • Great place to visit. Car and boat collection is great.
  • 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.
  • Unique private collection. Absolutely fantastic!
