Qatar's Orientalist Museum

Did You Know?


Qatar's Orientalist Museum is the only institution of its kind. It is dedicated to Orientalism - an influential period in art history, based around Western artists’ first experiences and impressions of the ‘oriental' East.

Through the collection of fine and applied arts, objects document the meeting of diverse cultures. This topic resonates well with audiences in Qatar, where different nationalities live harmoniously side-by-side. Exhibitions will fuel conversations that take place far beyond the galleries.
