    It is not an essential Doha for my opinion, but for a long stay and not have many more attractions, if you will not disappoint. It is full of references and can be entertaining.

    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...
