A visit to MIA Doha, the Museum of Islamic Art of Qatar should be on your To-Do List for your first visit to the Arabic State of Qatar. First opened in late 2008, the Museum features wide-ranging art pieces and paintings from various centuries. Read here below what you can expect at the Museum, and what rules to obey.

What to expect at the Museum of Islamic Art in Qatar

MIA Doha is one of the most prestigious museums in all Qatar. Part of the Museum actually is MIA Park, a public park adjacent to the museum. In another article I already wrote about this artificial green area by the shores in Doha. The main building also hosts a restaurant by french head chef Alain Ducasse, which focusses on a french inspired Mediterranean cuisine.

Just ahead of the FIFA Soccer World Cup 2022, hosted by Qatar, the museum underwent quite some upgrading. The museum now more than 1,100 mostly newly acquired exhibits, as well as upgraded areas to enhance the visitor experience. Find below some images prior to this refurbishment. The main collection of MIA Doha features Islamic Art from the past 1400 years. All objects, such as wood work, jewelry, glass and ceramics, manuscripts as well as metal and textiles, have been obtained from three continents. Most items of the collections have been gathered since the late 1980s.

If you’re from a non-Islamic country it’s super interesting to get to take a look at these historic pieces from other regions of the world, as you might be used to from your cultural background. Definitely worth a visit. If you’re short on time, a visit to the public spaces on the ground floor, in- and outside, are highly recommended! Just enjoy the views towards Doha West Bay and other parts of the city from MIA Doha.

How to visit MIA Doha in 2022 and 2023

And, as everywhere in the Islamic country, visitors must obey clothing rules. Find here some tips on how to dress: learnreligions.com/islamic-clothing-requirements
