When a museum is described as “eclectic” a certain image often comes to mind, namely a collection of ancient and modern pottery, paintings, statues, costumes, coins, jewelry, weapons, and other various artifacts. Yet, the Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani Museum (FBQ Museum) goes further.
Opened in 1998, the FBQ Museum preserves Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani’s private collection of artifacts. An enthusiastic collector, he travelled extensively throughout the world amassing a truly impressive variety of items. The museum houses more than 15,000 items, and it is broadly divided into four sections: Islamic art, coins and currency, vehicles, and Qatar heritage.
