This museum is fantastic, so many artefacts and momentos from around the world. A personal collection of the Thani family and well worth the trip. Quiet and peaceful but interesting and informative.

A well maintained private museum away from the Doha City offers a quiet atmosphere for the museum lovers and an exciting experience for the car/bike lovers. Filled with numerous things, however, most of our attention goes to the cars inside this museum.
