A great place to learn about the Islamic culture. The evening hours is the best time to visit. Best day is on Saturday as there is a local open air market with great artefacts. Also there is different cuisine from different nationalities.

The museum has interesting interior and a lot of arts from various places. I was suprised to find Muhammed Ali's memorial room upstares. It's cold inside, so bring your jacket.

MIA is unique as a building and as a museum. It is worth the visit. And if the weather is nice, the park has one of the most memorizing walks to the one of the best views in Doha. Just follow the path under the trees next to the sea.
