Visit museums in Qatar virtually

Google Arts & Culture is a platform that enables museums to feature their digitized collections through stunning high-resolution images that anyone can explore. By utilizing Google Street View technology, the site also provides virtual tours of museum galleries from all around the world. So you can wander through the ruins of ancient buildings in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin or get lost in the works of Renaissance masters in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

Locally, The National Museum of Qatar, The Museum of Islamic Art, and Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art have each created a spotlight on the beauty and reverence of Arab art by offering a unique virtual experience through Google Arts & Culture. You may have physically seen these collections before through the barrier of a glass case, but through this platform, you can interact with the objects and artworks in a more intimate way. You are able to go into a microscopic level of detail by zooming into the fascinating objects and see things that you couldn’t with the naked eye.
