  • For all those who love history and can appreciate ehibited items, this is the place which you cannot miss. This museum is very particular as there is no such order of exhibits. The owner Sheikh Faisal...  more »
  • Who has defined this beautiful Museum I'd invite him to visit to Islamic art, always in Doha. As regards automobiles should see to King Hussein of Jordan in Amman or the port of Malaga granted to the city by a private collector. Not to mention the Islamic relics Museum in Rabat where only the architecture of the building is well worth a visit. To see this site there are as many as 200 Riyals payable rates and still 15, entry fee per person. The shop has it all, even objects and things that families generally throw. Mal gusto. It is best not even mention "sacred" objects of Catholicism or Orthodox: crucifixes, vestments, pictures, statues of our Lady, old, ugly, broken and deteriorated that one wonders where he found if not abandoned in the sacristy, ready to be thrown away because it certainly doesn't inspire any religious sentiment but rather make up the Christian religion in a light gray and dusty when Instead, the religious sentiment resulted in works of art. Museum to forget, but Doha is not only this, it is a beautiful city. Too bad!

  • This is a long way out of Doha, so budget a day to get there and back, also allowing for traffic. (A visit to the camel racetrack could be included in the day). Our host was visiting for the 3rd time ...  more »

  • 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!
