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.
