As part of an initiative to introduce the wider community to Qatar's archaeological history, Qatar Museums has launched Atharna, a programme through which Culture Pass members will have the opportunity to visit historical sites across the country through curated tours.
The curated tours aim to provide Culture Pass members with a gateway to discover the heritage of Qatar, from early medieval settlements to 19th-century forts, villages, towers, and mosques.
Aisha Al Khater, Deputy CEO of Museum Affairs at Qatar Museums, said: "Through Atharna, Qatar Museums has put together a host of tours and workshops, during which our valued Culture Pass members can learn more about Qatar's fascinating archaeological history. We invite our members to sign up early to attend one or more of these offerings, as space is limited."
Upcoming Atharna events include:
All Atharna tours and workshops are open to Culture Pass members only. Culture Pass Plus or Culture Pass Family members can attend unlimited tours and workshops year-round. While Culture Pass Basic members can attend one trial tour and workshop in a year.
