Qatar Museums (QM) will celebrate International Museum Day — a global celebration of museums and their importance in promoting cultural understanding and exchange — by offering free entrance to all QM museums and exhibitions on Saturday.

The initiative will help both residents and visitors to explore QM’s acclaimed network of museums including the National Museum of Qatar, Museum of Islamic Art, Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum, and all of QM’s temporary exhibitions free of cost.

“At QM, we’re committed to providing inspiring experiences through our world-class cultural institutions. So, in celebration of International Museum Day, we’re delighted to be offering free entry to all our museums and current exhibitions, welcoming everyone to come and explore what we’ve on offer,” said Qatar Museums CEO Mohammed Saad Al Rumaihi.

“This initiative isn’t just about access; it’s also about encouraging each of us to seize the opportunity to discover something new and immerse ourselves in the wonders of art and culture,” he added.

International Museum Day is an international day held annually on or around May 18, coordinated by the International Council of Museums.

This year’s theme — Museums for Education and Research — aims to highlight the pivotal role of museums in education and research and emphasises the significance of museums as dynamic institutions that promote learning, discovery, and cultural understanding.
