Al Khor Museum

The town of Al Khor lies about 35 miles (57km) north of Doha. The Al Khor Museum is a double-storey building housing anthropological exhibitions as well as an excavation section displaying the numerous archaeological discoveries made in the Al Khor vicinity. Visitors will see artefacts dating back from the Neolithic and Bronze Ages, as well as exhibitions dealing with more modern facets of Qatari culture, such as displays showcasing the area's pearling and dhow-building industries. A highly recommended tourist activity in Qatar, the Al Khor Museum makes for a wonderful introduction to the country's rich cultural history.
