How to get there

As the Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani Museum is located well outside of Doha, it is only accessible by car. Getting to the museum takes roughly 30 minutes when driving from downtown Doha. You can get taxis that will take you to the museum, but you will then have to order another one to get back, so many people organize a driver when going independently.
