Residents now have a chance to visit the Qatar National Museum and experience its unique architecture before it’s officially open.
Ahead of its official opening scheduled at the end of next year, Qatar National Museum is offering exclusive tours to residents so they can “explore its interior and exterior grounds.”
A total of 50 tours have been scheduled for holders of the Qatar Culture Pass, starting July 24.
Sheikha Al-Mayassa bint Hamad Al Thani, Qatar Museums Chairperson, encouraged people not to miss out on the opportunity through Twitter, along with a link to a website explaining how to apply for the pass.
If you haven't already, don't miss your last opportunity to visit this architectural masterpiece.

“This is everyone’s last chance to experience the museum as an architectural artifact. We welcome all nationalities and residents,” she said in a statement.
Some residents have already toured the museum, including the Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who paid it a visit last month.
Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning French architect Jean Nouvel, its architecture draws inspiration from the desert rose.
It was originally planned to open in 2016, but after a series of delays it was announced that the museum will officially open in December 2018.
The Culture Pass Program
The Culture Pass was launched in 2014 and gives holders access to cultural activities around the country, as well as 15 to 25 percent discounts at a wide range of cafes, gift shops and activities.
There are four classes of membership, one of which is free while a small fee is charged for the other two.
