Arts and Culture

Museum of Islamic Art

Several cultural institutions, such as the Qatar Museums Authority and its museums—the Museum of Islamic Art, Mathaf Museum of Arab Modern Art, and the National Museum of Qatar, among others—the Doha Film Institute, and Katara cultural village, are transforming Qatar into a cultural hub of the region. Doha was chosen in 2010 to be the Arab Capital of Culture by the Arab League under UNESCO's Cultural Capitals Program.
