The light house like minaret is visible from every where and is a great sight in the evenings. The museum is nice and so is the aquarium.

the Qatar National Museum and Aquarium and its new home, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Doha makes a great choice when taking a holiday in the city. Visit major cultural attractions from the comforts of a four-star hotel by staying at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Doha.

This museum is under construction. How people are reviewing it I don't know. Don't waste your time it's a building site. The picture featured with this museum is actually Fanar Qatar Islamic arts centre.

Qatar National Museum is under renovation for long time. Hopefully with coming few month it will appear with its new dress. Well, visited this place long time ago several times. Ordinary with aquarium aside showing few kinds of fish. Watching the photos posted above, I can saw 90% of them don't belong to Qatar National Museum.

A splendid view of a spiral building at night. Small interesting museum inside. Close to the Souq, it is good to combine with that and MIA.

We went with high expectation and feeling satisfied. But the location is awesome and it located near sea. There are many old heritage items kept.
