The colossal museum of over 52,000 square meters is built from a series of discs which are interconnected at different angles, presenting themselves as desert rose, the unusual formation that occurs when a mineral salt crystallizes below the surface. Parts grandiose oval roof overlap directly over a central courtyard, while sandy concrete shell of the building with its appearance pays tribute to the nearby desert environment. In the museum there is a gallery in the form of rings which are 1.5 kilometers long even. The galleries are presented exhibits that visitors water through the history of Qatar, its art, music and poetry.
