The cultural heart of Doha

Within the refurbished development of Msheireb Downtown in the oldest part and the cultural hub of the capital, the Msheireb Museums celebrate the history of Qatar.  

Msheireb Museums

The Msheireb Museums are housed within four heritage houses – Bin Jelmood House, Company House, Mohammed Bin Jassim House and Radwani House –  restored by property developer Msheireb and transformed into museums that explore key players and periods in Qatar’s history and evolution. Each museum covers a topic that was directly related to the occupation or vision of its original inhabitants.  The museums thus act as authentic mouthpieces for Qatar’s socio-economic history and culture.

There is also a gift shop, café, restaurant and a library for research purposes, located within the museums’ premises.
