  • This museum is fantastic, so many artefacts and momentos from around the world. A personal collection of the Thani family and well worth the trip. Quiet and peaceful but interesting and informative.  more »

  • What a more than beautiful museum! Fine to drive from Doha, now still along the many construction sites! This museum contains the private collection of the Sheikh mosque. Clothes, furniture, weapons, clothing, pottery and above all a beautiful vintage car collection. However, there were more than 550 pieces behind closed doors. May be a next time. Also the staff is welcoming and helpful. Just like everywhere here in Doha!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Strange museum, equates to your well travelled aunts eclectic house times a million. I'm sure there are incredible things there but unfortunately there is not a lot of information or wayfinding so you will probably miss it. Good for car enthusiasts.
