    Designed by I.M. Pei, the building itself is fitting for the incredible works housed within. Also, a lovely little cafe with an amazing view of the bay!

    Escape the heat if only to admire the wonderful view of Doha from the ground floor cafe and enjoy artfully made Moroccan tea with a selection of delicious Arabic pastries

    Good place to spend a couple hours while layed over in Doha. The collection is not vast but the exhibits are well executed and the IM Pei designed museum has a nice combination of light and lines.

    It has a geometric design resembling a pile of rectangular boxes, also the inside is surrounded by geometric forms up to the ceiling. It has around three floors of galleries dedicated to Islamic Art.

    Really amazing architectural space and building. Museum content is well lit and displayed but there are really only 2 floors and lacking in content in general. But it’s nice place to walk around in

    Impressive building and great although necessarily limited collection; at some point you get tired of geometric patterns and calligraphic art, beautiful as they are. Very nice surrounding Park.

    You’re about to experience the biggest collection of Islamic art in the world. Pace yourself. Step outside and savour IM Pei’s design. Wonderful. Later stroll the Corniche with the locals at sundown.

    The Museum of Islamic Art (; free) is one of Doha’s biggest draws. The vast space is a clever mix of New York’s Guggenheim and Istanbul’s Yeni Camii mosque.

    Get the free media tour. It makes the exhibition much interesting and the main voice makes it sound you are doing a mysterious treasure hunt.
