  • What started as a personal collection of Sheikh is today a museum where you can find all sorts of things; from cars, airplanes, traditional utensils culture catari, fossils or dinosaur bones. In my opinion, and after years living in Doha, a place that you should visit.

  • 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!
