Excellent museum. One should must visit. Excellent collection by a single person, absolutely stunning. I have not seen so many varieties in a single museum like this.

About 40 minutes outside of Doha, this museum is the personal collection of Sheikh Faisal and a must see. Many carpets, costumes, ceramics and furniture from ancient times to quite recently. We had an excellent guide from the museum and this definitely enhanced our visit. Also visit the camel race track about 15 minutes away. Even if no races going... More

This museum is better than the Museum of Islamic Art. Sheikh Faisal Museum is a must visit for anyone visiting Doha. It's outside Doha on the way to Shahaniya. As others said there is something for everyone here, cars, jewelry, weaponry, art etc..

A wonderful opportunity to learn about history, customs, clothing, housing, exquisite Persian Rugs, Arabic calligraphy, weaponry - in contrast to a fine collection of old timers and hundreds of luxury cars, all in working order. We had a very knowledgeable guide who enlightened us on many aspects of Arabic and Islamic life. A Big Thank You.

For all those who love history and can appreciate ehibited items, this is the place which you cannot miss. This museum is very particular as there is no such order of exhibits. The owner Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani, exhibits all items which he has purchased or acquired during his trips. The exhibits include a unique collection of cars... More

This is a long way out of Doha, so budget a day to get there and back, also allowing for traffic. (A visit to the camel racetrack could be included in the day). Our host was visiting for the 3rd time and still found it interesting and saw items missed on previous tours. Definitely a place to return to again,... More

I went to the museum when my parents visited Qatar. Getting there is very hard. There are no signs (except in front of the museum) but with Google maps we found it by chance. Entrance is 15 riyals but if you want to take photo you need to get a photo access which is 50 riyals. Inside was way bigger... More

Sheikh Faisal museum worths a visit if you're in Qatar for a few hours. The Sheikh has an extensive, unique private collection of cars, carpets, religious artifacts from several religions, furnitures, fossils, swords and guns and much much more! The only drawback is the lack of descriptions in English for most objects. You may find guided tours; however, on our... More
