National Museum of Qatar to reopen on October 1

Museums and cultural sites in Doha have been gradually reopening since July 1, and now the National Museum of Qatar is set to join their ranks.

From October 1, you’ll be able to visit the museum’s permanent galleries, as well as a brand new exhibition entitled Splendours of the Ancient East: Antiquities from the al-Sabah Collection.

The temporary exhibition has more than 170 objects from the collection of Sheikh Nasser Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah and Sheikha Hussa Sabah al-Salem al-Sabah in Kuwait.

These objects give a fantastic overview of the artistic and material culture of the ancient world, and provide an insight into the roots of Islamic art.

Objects in the collection date from between the third millennium BCE to the fifth century CE and include jewellery, household furnishings, carved gemstones and seals, and ritual objects.

You can check out Ancient East: Antiquities from the al-Sabah Collection until January 3, 2021.

If you’re planning on visiting, you will need to present a green health status on the Ehteraz virus-tracing app and have your temperature taken.

You will also need to wear a mask at all times, with the exception of children under 12, and maintain social distance.
Sat-Thu 9am-7pm; Fri 1.30pm-7pm. National Museum of Qatar, Doha Corniche (4452 5555).
