Possibly because I am form Europe I am too spoiled in regards to modern art. Here I was just bored. Nothing really controversial. I can go there but you also do not miss out if you do not visit this museum.

Great Museum with good programming and events. However it is very difficult to get to and I have been left stranded more than once trying to direct Uber drivers to the museum.

Boring exhibits. No restaurant inside. Not easy to get there. Way finding is poor within the education city. Not recommended for visit.

The permanent collection was closed. The shuttle bus takes about 35 minutes from the Museum of Islamic Art so you get a good view of the construction taking place in Doha. If time was short, I would give this museum a miss.
