Culture Pass gives you exclusive, behind the scenes access to tours, talks and workshops to dive deep into the beauty of Qatar’s architecture, the history of our archeological sites, and well-rounded public art installations around the city.

The Culture Pass Teachers tier is designed to give educators exclusive access to Qatar Museums’ and Doha Film Institute's educational services, workshops, and specially curated programs.

The Culture Pass Teachers membership category offers primary, preparatory, and secondary school teachers a chance to expand their cultural knowledge and an opportunity to develop practical skill sets related to museums, exhibitions, film, and cultural endeavors in general.

 Many of these unique educational opportunities are inspired by and linked to the curriculum, supporting and enriching the classroom experience.

Teachers will receive unique educational training opportunities, as well as expand their cultural knowledge.

They can join tours, exhibition training tours, local artists’ workshops, and the ‘Teachers Teaching Teachers’ program, and get invitations for the Teachers’ Council and the Executive Teachers’ Council.

These include a 10% discount at QM gift shops, IN-Q Online, and Cass Art Qatar, as well as QM ticketed exhibitions.

For students 16 to 25 years, the tier gives them access to an array of QM events.
