Katara Cultural Village
‘Katara’ is the earliest known name for Qatar, as indicated on ancient maps. The Katara Cultural Village reflects Qatar’s proud heritage through traditional architecture, and brings together international arts, culture and cuisine within its 99-hectare seaside location.
The Village’s facilities include a public beach, an amphitheatre, art and exhibition galleries, a variety of restaurants and two enormous birdfeeders. It is also home to the Doha Tribeca Film Festival (DTFF) and has become a stylish landmark for many of Doha’s residents.
Museum of Islamic Art
This architectural wonder is built on a man-made island off Doha’s famous Corniche. Designed by I.M. Pei, the museum displays an internationally recognized permanent collection of Islamic artefacts from the 7th to the 19th century, as well as short-term exhibitions.
Arab Museum of Modern Art
The Mathaf, as it is known, highlights works from the Arab world’s flourishing contemporary art scene. This landmark opened in Doha in December 2010 as the Qatari capital celebrated its status as City of Arab Culture.
