Default Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al-Thani Museum, Qatar

The Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al-Thani Museum is a little gem hidden away a few miles from the city of Qatar. Entry is free though you need to book in advance and it isnt easy to find so you will have to rely on intuition and google maps to reach there. But it sure is worth it. Not only does it have a lot of important historical artifacts (that makes it a perfect family trip), the sheikh also was a big car buff and at any point in time his museum has only a small portion of his overall collection. I cant even imagine what else is stored away. If you are in Doha, you must visit the museum. Here are pictures of the automobile section of the museum.
