For all those who love history and can appreciate ehibited items, this is the place which you cannot miss. This museum is very particular as there is no such order of exhibits. The owner Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani, exhibits all items which he has purchased or acquired during his trips. The exhibits include a unique collection of cars... More

This is a long way out of Doha, so budget a day to get there and back, also allowing for traffic. (A visit to the camel racetrack could be included in the day). Our host was visiting for the 3rd time and still found it interesting and saw items missed on previous tours. Definitely a place to return to again,... More

I went to the museum when my parents visited Qatar. Getting there is very hard. There are no signs (except in front of the museum) but with Google maps we found it by chance. Entrance is 15 riyals but if you want to take photo you need to get a photo access which is 50 riyals. Inside was way bigger... More

Sheikh Faisal museum worths a visit if you're in Qatar for a few hours. The Sheikh has an extensive, unique private collection of cars, carpets, religious artifacts from several religions, furnitures, fossils, swords and guns and much much more! The only drawback is the lack of descriptions in English for most objects. You may find guided tours; however, on our... More

This museum boasts thousands of antiques from all over the world. The car collection alone is worth the price of admission. One of the most uniquely cool museums I've visited.

To be fair, I spent <1 hour here which was part of a 4-hour tour package. The museum is full of many diverse and interesting things. However, without my guide I wouldn't have understood the significance of some of the artifacts. Seems like a good place to bring a family. I wouldn't recommend driving out here just to visit the...

I was impressed with this museum. There were lots of interesting exhibits. I think children would get a bit bored. The highlight for us was the cheetah outside the museum. Be sure to have a look.

Sheikh Faisal Museum is a must visit for anyone visiting Doha. It is the only one of its kind here and houses a splendid display of Islamic and Middle East Cultural Artifacts. The vintage cars on display in the museum is unique in the region.

Not so easy to get to - taxi or car hire or perhaps an organised trip required. But, well worth a visit. As other reviewers have said there is almost something for everyone here, doors, cars, jewelry, weaponry, art and a well, among many items you would not think to see. A real find in the desert. Allow time to... More

You will never expect such a huge collection of artifacts and traditional things collected in the museum. For sure, you will get amazed. As it is away from the city, most people are not aware of this museum. A must visit in QATAR
