WE INVITE YOU TO VISIT US
Welcome to the new National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ). It is a place for you and your students. The stories and objects at the museum take you on a fascinating journey through the history of Qatar.
You can explore the country’s past and present, and debate what the future might hold. Interactive learning is at the heart of our museum through a wide range of exciting and inspiring programs.
The museum displays a wide range of subject matter such as archaeology, the natural world, the country’s rich resources and the history of the people. Our educational resources can be used in a way that creatively supports your curriculum requirements.
We look forward to seeing you soon at the National Museum of Qatar.
