Full description
Your cultural adventure begins when you’re picked up from your hotel in Doha and taken to your first stop of the tour, the Museum of Islamic Art. This specialized museum houses a large collection of Islamic manuscripts, textiles, ceramics and other works, the origin of which ranges from Spain to Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, India, and Central Asia. The museum has emerged as one of the world’s most encyclopedic collections of Islamic Art and was designed by award-winning Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei.  Next, indulge in the depths of Qatari and Islamic Cultur at the Bin Zaid Cultural Centre or, as the locals call it, Al Fanar. Inspired by the Great Mosque of Samarra in Iraq, the centre explains and teaches Islam to non-Muslims. You’ll then continue on to the Msheireb Museum, a celebration of history via four restored heritage houses that reveal unique aspects of Qatar’s cultural and social development.  Last but not least, you’ll head to the National Museum of Qatar to explore its rich, remarkable collection of archaeological and heritage objects: manuscripts, documents, photographs, jewelry and costumes, which together comprise a comprehensive picture of Qatar’s past, present, and future.

Excellent taster.

Enough time to explore each venue to decide if a return trip is needed. Brilliant architecture and displays. Guide was informative and gave extra insights into Qatar life. Wasn’t expecting two 50QR tickets on top of tour costs but my lack of planning and tickets valid for 3 days for a more extensive return visit. The trip was well worth the cost for a taster or those with limited time.
