Art and history attractions in Qatar?

Hi everyone,

I’m going to be stationed in Qatar for some contract work for a few months. Any historical sites or museums that really catch the eye? Some hidden gems wouldn’t go amiss either! Keen to here either from other travellers, locals, or experts.

Thanks,
Matt

    The museum of Islamic art
    Mathaf Arab museum of modern art.
    Msherieb museums
    The house of Mohammed bin Jassim
