A Sneak Peek at Qatar Auto Museum Project

Exhibition

Join us for an introduction to the new museum that will bring Qatar’s car community under one roof and one mission.

An exhibition in honour of the museum to come, A Sneak Peek at Qatar Auto Museum celebrates the mission to drive culture forward and to inspire the next generation of innovators, designers, engineers, collectors and policymakers through a shared passion for cars.

The exhibition features three spectacular cars within the Mawater Gallery, on view until January 20, 2023. For the first two weeks of the exhibition, a special outdoor display at the NMoQ lagoon area showcases cars on loan from several leading members of Qatar’s car community and the advisory board of Qatar Auto Museum.

The new Qatar Auto Museum will explore the past, present and future of the automobile and its impact on global life and culture. It will spotlight the car as a proud marker of Qatar’s growth, a common thread between a diverse population and a unifying vehicle of culture and innovation. In line with Qatar’s National Vision 2030, the development of Qatar Auto Museum will complement the state’s efforts to support the cultural, educational and tourism sectors, its strong investments in the automotive industry and its position as a host for global automotive events, such as the Qatar Geneva International Motor Show and the Formula 1.
