  • I’ve visited the place two times now. The collection is spectacular!!!! Plenty of cars, furniture, weapons and historic items. Today I was gonna go for a short visit and the security officer was really rude and no customer service. Turns out that the main entrance closes at 3:30 pm (one hour before closing) so we couldn’t go in. Again, great place to visit but bear in mind the timings.
  • This is what you should do when you have at least a day in Qatar. Just rent a car and come to this museum. It is really impressive by its size and a number unique artifacts, mostly dedicated to Muslim arts. What I liked the most is furniture, jewelry, cars. It is a calm place in the surrounding dessert and I especially liked it after megapolis rush.
