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.

Museum Of Islamic Art, Doha Reviews - Write a Review
This place is beautiful inside and out! Make sure you time your visit to take at least two hours to quickly see everything. It was free to visit and closed at 7 pm on a Saturday. We managed to overlap our visit with the sunset which was beautiful to watch from the outer fountain area. The waterfront becomes cold once the sun is down, so dress accordingly. We took the local bus to get there from airport. Bus 777 and it was 50 Riyal for two riders for 24 hour unlimited rides.

Excellent museum. Great permanent collection. Wonderful building. Great views. English explanations. "Free" entry. Good restaurants. A Doha must!
Prob the best place to visit if you're in Doha. Beautiful architecture and view of the ocean and city. Exhibits are pretty nice, but can get a little repetitive. Staff are pretty friendly, although we didn't have much interaction with them. There is a screening and backpacks have to be checked in. There is a recommended dress code, basically be conservative.
