Culture and entertainment
Get a dose of culture at the National Museum of Qatar, before heading to Doha Festival City, where a plethora of entertainment options await for the entire family.
Start the day at the National Museum of Qatar, which offers a multi-faceted and immersive experience for people of all ages, using archive images, digital interactivity, educational games, as well as sensory elements such as audio, scents, and tactile models.
