I booked my ticket to Mathaf online in their website. Qatar residents can enter the museum for free. When I arrived, they just scanned my QR code and I was able to enter the museum. The staff are friendly and approachable they even offer free lockers for you to leave your belongings. The museum showcases amazing paintings, sculptures and art installations. There is a small library inside and an interactive art room for kids. The location is accessible via public transportation. You can get there using the education city tram (blue line). Just check the train schedule before going if you decide to use the tram. I just wish there was a coffee shop or restaurant nearby.
Small but well organised and very enjoyable museum of not so well known aspect of modern art. I found almost all pictures beautiful and moving. The museum is a bit off the beaten path but well worth a visit if you love visual arts.
