The Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani’s complex of Museums (FBQ Museums) is the brainchild of a man’s long-lasting passion for collecting the world’s items of peculiar and historical relevance to create and share a new cultural heritage for Qatar and beyond. It showcases items from the private collection of the Sheikh after whom it is named.

However, FBQ Museums is much more than a series of gallery spaces. Since the inception of the main Museum in Al Shahaniya in 1998, through the establishment of the Carpet Museum in the heart of Doha in 2014, and with the forthcoming Car Museum, FBQ Museums have been engaging and connecting communities with Qatari heritage by celebrating diversity and hospitality.

A new museum extension is also in progress to expand the offer to keep inspiring people to learn through our collections, exhibitions, education, and public programs. In 2010, the museum was selected by the Ministry of Arts, Culture, and Heritage as one of Qatar’s cultural landmarks as part of the ‘Qatar Capital of Culture’ activities.

Please note that children under 12 years, ICOM member visitors with disabilities and caretaker, press and tour guides are free for regular tickets.
