Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar


On day 3 of our Qatar vacation, we decided to head to the Museum of Islamic Art. I personally love museums! Unfortunately, my husband, MR, isn't exactly a fan of museums, which is just one more point that make us completely different from each other. But hey, don't they say opposites have a way of attracting each other ... ???



Before even going in, the museum was a sight to hold and instagrammable.
But I was excited to go in and see what treasures were kept inside.











I decided to take a bit more photos of the outside. There's something about Doha that fascinates me and I can't quite put a finger on it. It's modern, but at the same time very traditional.



Entrance to the museum is free.
I can't help but wonder if there are any free museums in France. I have a doubt.




Like its city, the museum is influenced by traditional Islamic architecture, but also a touch of modernity.



What a view!
I believe you can have a beautiful view of the Doha Bay, while sipping a cup of coffee or tea here.

Unfortunately, it was forbidden to take photos of the museum collection, but it was amazing. These were Islamic art coming from different continents in the world from thousand of years ago. It was interesting to learn and discover things I didn't know about the Islamic culture, which admittedly I didn't know much of.

So in lieu of taking photos of the inside,  I opted to take more photos of the outside.
Tell me - how could I not?!
