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

  • If you are a person who likes ancient history well this museum has items dating from the year 10ad. Beautiful peaces of art, utensils, rugs, books and rifles many more beautiful items. Some of the the things took my breath away. It may be a Islamic museum, but every one is welcomed. The outside has a lovely view

  • Museum of Islamic Art is very informative for those who are interested in artifacts and for those who are curious what is all about. It is additional knowledge and very helpful for young and adults. During my visit, I spend 1 hour or more, I enjoy taking photos and viewing the historical property of this country. It was a great surprise that there are wonderful things around the world, very impressive that you can also see from the museum. It is one of a kind. Bring your friends and family, it is highly recommended. VSR

  • Nice collection of art from countries with Islamic history. Some of items are very old. Not sure if those have been restored, but some of them still inspire in terms of how people in those old times managed something like that. Museum is divided into multiple subsections with each hosting a bunch of relevant art work. If you are interested in Muslim history in terms of art over past 14 centuries, this is good place to go.

  • A must-see if you get to Doha. The park surrounding the museum is beautiful and well-kept - a green oasis on the corniche. The architecture is stunning inside and out. The exhibits are also quite extensive and interesting, but even if they don't interest you, visit just for the scenery and architecture. I recommend being there at sunset. The views then are wonderful as you enjoy both the sunset as well as the skyline across the bay as it begins to light up. Oh, and the museum is free!

  • The architecture of this building gets a 6 out of 5. Absolutely amazing. The museum exhibits are on floors 2,3 and 4. Some very interesting pieces, but it does lack content, it does take between 1 and 2 hours to complete the entire exhibits open. The museum is free and needs to be included on any visit to Qatar if you have the time, even if it is just to behold the architecture.
