  • Once inside it is full of local information and Qatar history. Beautifully displayed and layout. On arrival you are greeted with Arabic tea and friendly staff. The price is very reasonable and only 30QAR if you are a teacher! Children under 12 are free. We didn't use the guide but was a tour for children and they were guided around the museum with a fun map/treasure hunt. There is so much to explore and take in that I feel the need to visit again -it's too much for one trip. I particularly enjoyed the display of classic cars.
  • With over 30,000 objects spanning over a hundred years and ranging in size, FBQ Museum represents a modern version of a Cabinet of Curiosities. Worth to visit. You will be asked for a QID or passport at the main gate. Tickets can be purchased at the entrance for 50 riyals for adults. After your tour you can relax at the coffee shop.
