Museum of Islamic Art

Al Corniche St.
Doha, Qatar
TEL: 974 422 4444

With a 4,500-work collection that spans 13 centuries and three continents, this ambitious new museum is setting a precedent for cultural celebration and preservation in a region known more for its sometimes extravagant embrace of the future. Housed in an I. M. Pei–designed building, the museum’s diverse holdings reflect the history and vitality of the Islamic world: 10th-century gold-inked North African Korans, bejeweled vases from 14th-century Egypt, Ottoman swords, and Iraqi earthenware. Together they add up to one of the premier collections of Islamic art—and testify to Qatar’s status as one of the 21st century’s emerging culture capitals.

Open daily at 10:30. Tickets are free.
