Museum Of Islamic Art - Review
The Qataris have more than one reason to thank the architect of the Museum of Islamic Art - I.M. Pei. The architecture of this beautiful museum is completely unmatched and is impeccable. Situated in one of the most frequented areas of Doha, this museum is a perfect place to visit specially for the followers and lovers of Islam. The documentation and other sources that highlight the cultural side of Islam are definitely worth exploring. Apart from this there are also prayer rooms situated inside for Muslims who visit. One of the biggest highlight of this place definitely is the high end restaurant that serves some exquisite French cuisine with a tinge of Arabic flavours. You must also check out the MIA Park here which is simply breath-taking.

Museum Of Islamic Art, Doha Reviews
It is a beautiful building ... silent... spacious... and very interesting. Has a cafe on the ground floor... and a well lit sitting area with a gorgeous view of the bay. Closes at 7 PM. The relics on the various floors are very interesting... though it's not overcrowded. Week days are the best time to visit.
Nice spot in Doha. Not a big collection but worth seeing. The views are stunning. Many cultural events take place and enrich the culture in Qatar. The restaurant of Ducass is worth trying at least once
Wonderful place to be. A must see in Doha - Qatar. Awesome architectural design. Sustainable design. Great initiative and uncompromising efforts.
A nice place to view historic relics from all over the world with regard to Islamic influence on culture. Very modern museum with perfect ambient lighting and spacious aisles to view the exhibits at one's own pace. The exterior settings of the museum too is spacious and ideal to take pictures of the night view of the west bay. Really worth a visit.
Amazing museum. They collected and maintaining precious things. Definitely you will get a miraculous feeling, once you entered the museum.
