Sheikh Faisal’s private museum at Al Samriya tells the story of Qatar through the personal collection of one man and his family. The collection features a fascinating array of more than 15,000 exhibits covering a spectrum of arts, personal artefacts and equipment, as well as many everyday household and traditional items that evoke a flavour of Qatari life in the pre-oil era.

One feature of the museum is its extensive collection of carpets and beautifully preserved vintage vehicles.
