Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art is a friendly, modern art space for people to visit, look at art, talk about it, relax and feel inspired. We house a unique collection of Modern art and contemporary art from all over the Arab world.
Sunday through Thursday there's a free hourly shuttle to/from the Museum of Islamic Art, on the Corniche in the city
The nearby VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University) also has a small gallery, but until the trams are finished it's almost impossible to get there from here...
Lovely space. A bit isolated location wise so make sure you have a cab # for a ride back!
It's a place you must visit
Avoid unless there's an exhibit on. Permanent collection is small and blah; pieces are unmarked/labeled and hard to identify. Poor signage. Nobody at reception. Gift shop pricey but interesting.
Make sure you visit the gift shop for awesome local products, exhibition merchandise and artsy gifts!
Amazing modern art museum with tiny gift shop. Ask for student discount.

If you take a picture , even of just friends behind a white background they won't welcome it and ask you not to ..

The caramel cappuccino is pretty good if you have a sweet tooth.
Go to the city gallery and check out the 'villages under the wings of silence' painting - truly captures the muted voices of Arabs
There is a surprise under the ship near the entrance :D
