Qatar National Museum

Qatar Go Full Screen

Located at the beginning of the Doha Corniche, the Qatar National Museum will offer its 40 000 square meters in the neighbourhood of the historic palace belonging to the Al Thani family. Requesting the expertise of the Ateliers Jean Nouvel  for designing the new museum, Qatar Museum Authority wants to replace the site of the old museum in the heart of an ambitious program of cultural development. The new National Museum of Qatar will have an international stature. Its mission is to tie the past of the Emirate, the central place it occupies today on the international scene and its future. The scenography will put into dialogue the national collections and the films directed by prestigious authors that will bring the museum galleries to life. The museum will also offer visitors the opportunity to discover the most outstanding Qatar sites and compare this live experience with the one that will be offered by the collections and the films.
