On the 31st of May, students are welcome to experience an online tour of the National Museum of Qatar from the comfort of their homes or classrooms. The tours have been organised to serve as an interresting and culturally stimulating adventure for students with an online help of a museum guide.

4) The Modern History of Qatar

The live tour will start at 9am and will last until noon. It is free to attend. Though participants should keep in mind that they need to register by email before attending (schoolsnmoq@qm.org.qa). The available languages are Arabic, English, French, Italian, Chinese, Spanish, Turkish and German.

The National Museum of Qatar was opened in 2019. It tells about the culture of the country and about the Qataris themselves. Also, it offers an exhibition of objects that illustrates an important aspect of the entire history of the state. There is a beautiful landscape park with 114 fountain sculptures around the museum.

The museum was built around the old palace of Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani, the late son of the founder of modern Qatar. Initially, it was the home of the royal family, and more recently it has acted as a national museum.

The architecture of the building of the National Museum of Qatar captivates the residents and guests of the city with its uniqueness. The museum building was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel. The inspiration of the architect was the “desert rose”, which is one of the varieties of the mineral gypsum. The building of the National Museum of Qatar turned out to be incredible, unlike any other building in the world.
