Qatar’s Museum Quarter


Qatar is spoilt for choice with museums, cultural institutions and heritage sites, all under the umbrella of Qatar Museums and all committed to nurturing artistic talent. The Museum of Islamic Art’s collection includes manuscripts, ceramics, metal, glass, ivory, textiles, wood and precious stones collected from three continents, while Mathaf, the Arab Museum of Modern Art features a rare overview of modern Arab art, spanning the 1840s through to the present. QM Gallery hosts exhibitions of Qatari artists and organises international exhibitions, while the Orientalist Museum has one of the most significant collections of Orientalist art ever assembled in the world. Other museums currently being built include the 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum and the National Museum of Qatar.
