  • Impressive!! The entrance fee is QR20 only for adult, child is free. The place is huge! No bags are allowed and of course no water and food! It is vast with lots of varieties, from vehicles (bicycles, motor bikes, cars, boats), fossils, mineral rocks, guns, furniture, textile and jewelry and many more!!! It is like personal collection than proper museum but worth a visit! The displays arrangement could be better if work on properly. Downside of the museum is most of the displays are explained with minimum description, which is difficult for visitors to understand.
  • I was most impressed with the museum. The exhibits are wonderful and housed in very nice surroundings. It is well worth a visit to see the truly amazing collection. I couldn't find a route to it on Google maps, so spent a lot of time searching for it. John Batey
  • Vast collection. Item arrangements could be better though. QR 20 entry adult and free for children. You can bring and take pictures with no additional cost. But no any kind of bag is allowed inside. There is bag deposit service provided at the entrance. Definitely worth the trip.
  • A must see if you r in Qatar it's a museum of very diverse collection . I guess after salarjung museum largest one man collection this is the best. Adults are charged 20 QR and children are free. There is a wheelchair accessible museum. I urge every one in Qatar to see it . The collection of cars is mesmerizing.
  • Visited more than 100 times. So sad to see every three months new faces, new staff's. They not know how to face the guests. Thank God very nice and welcoming security guards. I'm really happy to come back again and again because of this guys. Tour guides need more attention on guests. Thanks to Mr. Waleed for your warm welcoming our visitors.
