About Museum Of Islamic Art, Doha
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.

It is combination of very large amount of historical goods , many Islamic arts, before 1000 years many hand written Islamic books, used house hold materials, many weapons (knife, sword, armored dress) used in war , it is multi storied well furnished and well designed building here many restaurants , toilets, drinking water, rest rooms are available for visitors, also very nice several water fountain in front and inside of Museum. from this museum you can see the Doha city and beauty of sea.
A must-visit place in Doha. The location is great, the museum is full of historical stuff related to Islamic arts. They allow photography (without flash) and the staff is very cooperative in providing all the related information. Very calm environment. Great views from the outside whuch makes it a perfect place for some nice walk.
Absolutely gorgeous. Try to get there before the weaponry and armour exhibit ends if you can. The permanent exhibits are great as well. Make sure to go out onto the terrace for a fantastic view of the Doha skyline.
Of course many passengers use this museum as a part of their layover in DOH but I would definitely recommend it when you stay longer. The architecture is awesome. It even started when you walk up the small hill with Doha´s skyline in the back. Entrance is free. I loved the arrangement of so different pieces of history and art. The entrance hall is a museum of itself.
