Qatar is home to many fascinating museums and heritage sites. Among these cultural treasures are the Muslim Islamic Art, the new National Museum of Qatar, and Mathaf Arab Museum of Modern Art, all of which are included under the Qatar Museums (QM) umbrella. QM is an organisation of group of museums, iconic buildings and artistic sites that aims to develop, promote, and sustain the cultural sector of Qatar. It aims to develop interest in these magnificent works of art, and has developed a programme this summer to attract both locals and tourist to these sites. The programme is all part of Qatar National Tourism Council’s (QNTC) theme for this year, Summer in Qatar that kicked off last June 4 and will continue until Aug 13. It’s a wide range selection of thrilling indoor and outdoor experiences, discounts, special promotions along with entertainment programmes for families and kids to enjoy the summer break.
