The 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum will transport visitors through thousands of years of sports history with unforgettable exhibits, objects that tell inspiring stories, state-of-the-art displays, and unique activity areas. The museum is designed to educate and entertain whilst igniting a passion and enthusiasm for sport in all those who visit.

From personal testimonies that explain the history of sport in Qatar, to interactive simulators, the museum presents a vast array of objects, artefacts and exhibits – all demonstrating how sport and Qatar are intrinsically linked. Museum galleries will take visitors through various sports popular in antiquity, the history of the Olympic Games, from its ancient origins to modern times, and the development of sport in Qatar.

Commenting on the announcement of his appointment as Acting Director, Fuad Almudahka said: “I’m thrilled to accept this unique challenge of delivering the 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum, which showcases the country’s progress as a leading cultural hub and which promises to be a unique and inspiring environment for all who visit. It’s a huge honour to be involved and I’m looking forward to working closely with my team to ensure the museum fully lives up to its potential.”

QM has made considerable progress in recent years in identifying and nurturing talented professionals. It invests considerable time and resources both inside and outside the organisation in continually supporting such individuals, helping them to flourish.

Such progress has been achieved through the success of initiatives such as QReation Generation – a high-level professional development programme designed to shape the future arts and cultural leaders of QM, Qatar and the region.
