A Museum that Takes Risks
Mathaf Arab Museum of Modern Art, located in Education City, holds, like some other places in Qatar, a world record: this museum holds over 9,000 works, making it the largest collection of Arab modern and contemporary art in the world. This fact alone is enough reason to visit it. Its exhibits are divided into permanent and contemporary collections. It is a museum that takes risks with its installations, it pushes the envelope without being offensive, and has a dedicated space for artistic experiments called the Project Space. The museum houses the Maqha Café, a chic coffee bar perfect to chill after walking around the museum. The Mahal gif shop offers a range of unique one-off gifts at affordable prices.
