Well worth a visit to this museum. Aside from the amazing exhibitions which you can get up close to, the building itself is something quite incredible! Make sure you walk around outside too, we were there at dusk and witnessed a beautiful sunset!

The Museum of Islamic Art is a beautiful building in itself, architecturally. The location is spectacular with gorgeous views of the bay and skyline. The museum artifacts are lovely, varied, and impressive. It's worth a stop.

The MIA is one a best place that you can visit in Doha. You can see most of the middle east country's history.. Also you can find the Chinese terra cotta worries as well.. That is very interesting thing to see. If u tired of walking the museum you can simply go to the restaurant and have some delicious foods.

The building of Museum of Islamic Art is definitely one of Doha icon, so it's difficult to not visit it at least for 15 minutes. I spent there actually bit more, cause the museum has a really a lot to offer, but if you are not art fanatic, most probably, after some time you get bored as I did.

Interesting to do, however if on a fleeting visit not a must see! Each floor takes you through the history and for when I visited It culminated with the Mohammed ali museum on the top which was very interesting. If you have a spare afternoon worth popping in

A lovely place to visit. Displays change regularly, so going back isn't an issue if you're here a while. A nice gift shop and restaurant. Nice place to spend a couple of hours.
