Msheireb Museums are an integral aspect of the inner city’s regeneration of the old commercial centre with its traditional community-based lifestyle.
Msheireb Museums includes four restored heritage houses in the Msheireb reconstruction area of Doha: Bin Jelmood House, Company House, Mohammed Bin Jassim House and Radwani House. These are all located within easy walking distance of each other. Each small museum has a different focus.
Bin Jelmood House focusses on the history of the Arab slave trade.
Company House has artifacts, videos and information about the start of the oil and gas trade in Qatar.
Mohammed Bin Jassim House gives the history of Msheireb and plans for the future.
Radwani House is a traditional home.
“Today Msheireb Downtown Doha enters a new chapter in its history, through which it will inspire young minds of the future with the wisdom and beauty of our past. With the opening of these museums, Msheireb reaches a milestone in fulfilling its vision of maintaining our unique architectural identity in Qatar, in a location that is set to be the vibrant heart of our capital,” – Sheikha Moza
