Qatar Museums Gift Shop at NMOQ
Doha, 10 August 2023 – The Gift Shop at the National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ), operated by IN-Q Enterprises (IN-Q) - the commercial arm and wholly owned subsidiary of Qatar Museums (QM), recently ran a series of interactive scavenger hunt activities. These activities provided visitors with a unique opportunity to delve into Qatar's rich cultural heritage and history while engaging in a fun-filled race to complete the hunt with the most correct answers within the given time. More than ten teams eagerly embarked on a journey of discovery, uncovering hidden gems and fascinating facts about Qatar's past and present. The scavenger hunt not only entertained participants but also fostered a deeper connection with the museum's galleries and their captivating stories.
The winning teams were awarded with special gifts from the NMoQ Gift Shop, and Café 875 treated the participants to delightful refreshments. Café 875, located at NMoQ’s Mezzanine and operated by W Doha Hotel & Residences (W Doha), offers a wide selection of delicious and healthy menu options, including early riser treats, light bites, signature main dishes, and delectable desserts to complement a variety of cold and hot beverages.
