  • This is by far and away the most fascinating place in Qatar, if you enjoy an eclectic mix of exhibits. Ancient fossils next to antique cars; medieval Persian armour and weaponry next to Al Thani family artefacts. They even have two ancient natural working wells in the middle of the museum which are sunk to a depth of 80m drawing from an underground following water course.
  • Amazing place to visit. . I was very surprised as I was not expecting much, but whatever I saw was beyond expectation. . I couldn't see the entire place as I got a bit tired . . But I am planning to visit it with my friend soon...
  • The best museum in Qatar. Great collection. I love the section with the fossils..
  • I love the vast collection of vintage cars here. A must see in Qatar.
  • The most exciting place in Qatar. So many interesting exposion, friendly staff and so amazing people work there)))
