One of the best places you must to visit while you live here or on vacation - museum of Shaikh Faisal. They have a huge collection of authentic and ancient historical pieces of arts. From small materials up to boats, old cars and weapons. Great place in Doha, even though it's a bit far from city, but worth to visit.

An extraordinary place with an extraordinary collection of cars, armory,, costume, lifestyle,furnitures, artworks, maritime, farm equipment. A must visit for anyone travelling to Qatar. This is a collection that probably has no equal, presented in a stone, fort that in itself is fascinating.

In short it's 5 big museums in one! Cars, weapons, antique rugs, crockery, calligraphy, Dinosaur eggs and the list goes on and on! A collection worth visiting again and again. Do get a guide though so you can really get to know the history and significance of all the exhibits. Also, once you get of the highway stayon the parallel... More

If you're interested in history and collections, then this place will fascinate you. It is absolutely amazing to consider that one man could possibly collect this amount of stuff. The museum is absolutely brimming with items from several periods and categories, and it goes on forever. If you can, try and set up a tour guide to explain some of... More

The collections of Sheikh Faisal are exquisite. You can see old paintings, very fine vintage cars, Persian rugs, etc. Great museum to visit for a couple of hours.
