Museum of Islamic Arts
The Museum of Islamic Arts is a museum located in the Qatari capital Doha. The museum was designed by the architect I. M. Pei, one of the 20th century's most successful architects. The museum draws much influence from ancient Sumerian, Babylonian and Assyrian architecture, giving it a unique design. The museum will be the first of its kind in the Gulf, and is expected to have a very large collection of some of the best Islamic art, as well as a study, a library, and several restaurants.
