About Us

The Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) represents Islamic art from three continents over 1,400 years.

The Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) houses one of the most comprehensive collections of Islamic art in the world, with masterpieces from every corner of the globe representing the diversity found in Islamic heritage.

Although our galleries are currently closed for renovation, our learning and outreach team continues to offer a wide variety of engaging events and programmes for audiences of all ages. The MIA Library is currently closed.

Our online collection features more than 400 museum highlights, including metalwork, ceramics, jewellery, woodwork, textiles, coins and glass.

The spectacular waterfront museum will reopen in late 2022 with a new visitor-focused layout that will accommodate a larger audience and attract more tourists to Qatar.

MIA’s collection celebrates the great legacy of the Islamic world and its contribution to global heritage.
