Located in Doha’s Education City, Mathaf museum, designed by the acclaimed French architect Jean-François Bodin, is the only institution of its type in the region, hosting modern art exhibits and programmes offering an Arab perspective on contemporary art. 

The museum is a uniquely spectacular arts space containing a collection of more than 6,000 works, spanning the 1840s to the present day.  

Mathaf’s artistic vision is to promote exhibitions that are both historical and experimental in their nature. The museum’s permanent collection is an outstanding showcase of both historical and contemporary modern Arab art. 

Among those featured include internationally renowned and award-winning figures such as Etel Adnan (Lebanon), Farid Belkahia (Morocco), Saloua Raouda Choucair (Lebanon and Faraj Daham (Qatar). 

Mathaf is linked by shuttle bus to the Museum of Islamic Art.
