A magnificently designed building right on the water, with a stunning lobby in the middle. The special exhibit on the Hajj was exceptionally creative and informative, while the art kept on permanent display varies widely in quality and intrigue.
Entrance is free, and it is definitely worth perusing while you are in town. Do check the hours though, as they are a little particular.

Everything about this museum is stunning -- the location, the I.M. Pei design, and the art collection. Well-displayed without too much text, the museum is nicely organized in a way that educates but still appeals to short attention spans.
Be sure to walk the grounds and take photos of the skyline. Nice to see such a thorough yet well-curated collection.

This sprawling museum is as striking on the outside as it is inside. Stunning modern minimalist architecture on the outside contrasts the ancient treasures that are housed inside. Artefacts and historical art from all around the Islamic world are beautifully presented. Art lovers and history buffs and all visitors to Doha for that matter should make this is a must-see.

This museum is a must-see in Doha. For those who are not taken with the spacious well-organized galleries of Islamic art, the building itself is an architectural beauty, and there's a lovely cafe on the ground floor overlooking the bay (and the sunset if you're there in the late afternoon). Best of all, it's free.

Set on its own island in the Bay of Doha, this I.M. Pei designed Museum of Islamic Art hosts one of the most diverse collections of Muslim artifacts from around in the world. The Spanish, Egyptian, Iranian, Iraqi, Turkish, Indian and Central Asian interpretations of Islam found here in their original form will have you lingering longer than expected.

As Doha isn't really known as a tourist attraction this has got to be on the top of your list if you visit. The museum is beautiful, even if you just go there to take pictures of the Museum itself and of the great view of the sea it is worth a trip. It is free and closed one day a week, but I forget when. It isn't a huge museum and can take up a nice part of an afternoon. Some of the artifacts are really impressive and it definitely holds your attention.

This picturesque cubist-style museum is an architectural masterpiece built in 2008. It houses an impressive collection of Islamic Artworks dating from the 7th to the 19th centuries including manuscripts, ceramics, metal, glass, ivory, textiles, wood and precious objects.
