Fire Station

Summary
A thriving arts centre, this space served as a fire station for three decades.
Description

Abutting Doha’s central Al Bidda Park, the Fire Station Gallery was built in 1982 and used as a fire station for over thirty years.  In December of 2012,  the last fire engine was removed, and the space became part of the Qatar Museums network.  Converted into a contemporary art space, the gallery showcases art and artists, engages the local community, and nurtures emerging talent through its artist in residence program.

Museum of Islamic Art

The internationally renowned Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) is the crown jewel of Qatar’s museums.

Summary
The internationally renowned Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) is the crown jewel of Qatar’s museums.
Description

An Architectural Wonder

On a purpose-built island abutting the Corniche, Doha’s waterfront promenade, the building itself is an architectural wonder designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect I.M. Pei. The museum contains four floors of permanent and temporary exhibitions, gift shop, a café and a haute cuisine restaurant IDAM by renowned chef Alain Ducasse, on the fifth floor.  It is also home to a heritage library, with a collection of 21,000 books including 2000 rare editions in both Arabic and English.

MIA showcases 14 centuries of Islamic art and artefacts from around the world. 

The museum hosts a variety of cultural activities throughout the year, including performances by the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, film screenings and art and calligraphy classes for the community. The lush MIA park next to the museum overlooks the Arabian sea, and is a favourite spot for family picnics, walking, running or outdoor yoga classes. A weekend bazar in the cooler months features over a hundred stalls selling everything from food and drinks to handicrafts, clothing and jewellery.

Highlights of your visit:

·         Terrace for unparalleled views of Doha’s skyline

·         Lush gardens of MIA Park

·         Philippe Starck designed MIA Café 

MIA commands breathtaking views of the city’s skyline. Inside the museum, visitors should look for the Shahnameh Manuscript. Written a thousand years ago by Persian poet Ferdowsi, the Book of Kings recounts the histories and myths of the pre-Islamic Greater Persian Empire.  See one of the world’s first navigational tools, the Planispheric Astrolabe, made in 10th century Iraq during Abbasid rule.  Be dazzled by the Carved Emerald Plaque, a large emerald from the 16th century.

East-West/West-East

Summary
Comprising of four steel plates this art installation spans over 1km.
Description

Nestled between limestone rock formations outside Zekreet, just north of Doha, lies Richard Serra’s East-West/West-East installation.  Comprising of four steel plates, each of which is over 14m in height, the installation spans over 1km.  It stands in stark contrast to the soft brown hues of the desert surrounding it, and offers a comment on isolation and the passage of time.

Barzan Towers

Summary
This imposing 16-metre high watchtower was a lookout for approaching ships.
Description

Built in traditional Qatari design from coral rock and limestone between 1910- 16, this imposing 16-metre high watchtower was a lookout for approaching ships, particularly those of incoming Ottoman troops in the early 1900s.  It is believed to have also been used to protect water supplies and as an observatory to track the moon and determine the dates of the lunar calendar. Unlike other forts in Qatar, Barzan Towers was built over several floors, giving it the name Barzan, which means High Place in Arabic.

Al Zubarah

Summary
This 20th century fort is the youngest and most prominent feature at the Al Zubarah Archaeological Site
Description

This 20th century fort is the youngest and most prominent feature at the Al Zubarah Archaeological Site, a UNESCO World Heritage site.  A pristine example of a typical Arab fort, its one-meter-thick walls could ward off invaders and also helped keep the rooms cool during the hot summer months.  Located adjacent to the walled coastal town of Al Zubarah, about 105 km northwest of Doha, the fort overlooks the ruins of a once bustling pearling and trading town which bore witness to fierce tribal battles in the 18th century as powerful empires fought for regional dominance. 

The heavily fortified town of Al Zubarah fell to forces loyal to the Sultan of Muscat in 1811. In the 19th century it expanded into a bustling settlement that would go on to form the beginnings of the modern-day Gulf states.  Today, the fort has been transformed into a museum where visitors can explore artefacts from the pearl diving era.

Description

Located in the northeast of Qatar, Al Jassasiya is the most impressive of Qatar’s dozen rock-carving sites.  It comprises a total of 874 carvings, known as petroglyphs, the earliest thought to date from Neolithic times.  Discovered in 1957, the petroglyphs consist of various designs and patterns such as footprints, ships, and cup marks. The latter are believed to have been used in ancient board games such as mancala, known as Al Haloosa or Al Huwaila in Qatar.

Summary
A feast for the eyes, this Venice-inspired neighbourhood brings a piece of the Mediterranean to Doha.
Description

A feast for the eyes, this Venice-inspired neighbourhood brings a piece of the Mediterranean to Doha. Boasting turquoise canals flanked by candy-coloured buildings and gracefully arched bridges, Qanat Quartier abounds with Instagram-worthy vistas. Play a tune on the musical staircase, or take a leisurely stroll down broad avenues as you wander in and out of the neighbourhood’s many boutiques and cafés. Grab a coffee, stick your toes in the sand, and take in stunning views of the Arabian Gulf from Qanat Quartier’s beachfront promenade.

Al Wajba Fort

Summary
15km west of Doha stand the remains of Al Wajba Fort, one of the oldest forts in the region.
Description

15km west of Doha stand the remains of Al Wajba Fort, one of the oldest forts in the region.  Originally built in the late 1700s, it was where the Battle of Al Wajbah played out in March 1893. At the time, Qatar was a province of the Ottoman Empire, and the battle occurred after Ottoman officials imprisoned 16 Qatari tribal leaders. The Ottomans were defeated by the army of Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani, who had refused to bend to Ottoman rule. A key part of the Sheikh’s winning strategy was to cut off the area's water supply.

During its lifetime, Al Wajba Fort has also been home to a number of sheikhs, including Hamad bin Abdullah Al Thani. It represents a truly authentic piece of Arabian social and political history.

Al Thaqab Fort

Summary
This beautifully preserved fort was built in the early 1800s out of rough blocks of coral, limestone and mud.
Description

Sitting alone in a rocky, sandy expanse of desert in the municipality of Madinat ash Shamal in Qatar, this beautifully preserved fort was built in the early 1800s out of rough blocks of coral, limestone and mud. Thaqab means 'water in the bottom of the valley after the rain' and is widely believed to have been built to guard water – a most precious commodity in the desert - which came from a deep well on the west side of the fort.

Bin Gannam Island

Summary
Bin Ghannam Island
Description

Near the town of Al Khor lies Bin Ghannam Island, popularly known as Purple Island. This name comes from when the island was the main site of the Kassite-controlled purple dye industry in the second millennium BC.  This was a thriving industry at the time, since purple has traditionally been associated with royalty.  Today, visitors can kayak or hike around the island, and camping is allowed onsite, offering a rustic experience.

Dahl Al Misfir Cave

Summary
Dahl Al Misfir Cave
Description

One of Qatar’s most exciting natural sites, the 40m deep cave at Dahl Al Misfir is formed largely of fibrous gypsum that sometimes gives off a faint, otherworldly glow. This phosphorescence is the result of gypsum deposits found in the centre of the peninsula which give rise to the geological phenomena known as desert roses (clusters of roughly rose-shaped gypsum crystals).
