National Museum of Qatar

Museum in Doha

The National Museum of Qatar is expected to be one of Doha's standout attractions when it reopens in December 2018 after a massive, several-year renovation. Architect Jean Nouvel's desert-rose-inspired structure, which forms the museum's centrepiece, is spectacular in its own right and will no doubt be in line to scoop up numerous architectural awards. The complex just off the Corniche will house a 220-seat auditorium, retail outlets, restaurants and a cafe, plus a park filled with flora native to Qatar.
