  • Collections of everything that can be collected.. And even what you thought couldn't be collected, too. It is a huge space that is currently expanding and although it is a little far from Doha it is worth visiting for the number and variety of objects of all eras. Special mention to the car collection.

  • Got a taxi to take us here although there is a bus which runs down to museum too. Visit was in Feb 2017. Great to see all the building work at University on way to Museum. Taxi driver was telling us that many locals not really into modern art which perhaps explains why museum so quiet. Fabulous architecture. Building open and bright. Interesting art on show and had nice chat with man working on the front desk who had excellent English. Art been donated (I think) by member of Royal Family. Interesting permanent exhibition plus work on show for temporary visits. Art Museum has library and learning spaces and a cafe. Well worth a visit.
  • Modern Art, museum in Doha. For those who are interested to feel the middle east modern art, I believe it is a place where you should definitely go! Museum is not to big, well arranged and I learnt a couple of things even though I am not keen in modern art. -- Access wise is it a mess... Education City is still under construction so watch out the signs more than the GPS 😉 -- You can eat there, they also have a dedicated library, sittings and a kids area 😊
