the NEW National Museum of Qatar

The galleries themselves include giant immersive screens. It’s impressive.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

The National Museum of Qatar opened to the public on 28 March 2019. …

The 430,000 square foot (40,000 m²) museum is made up of interlocking discs that create cavities to protect visitors from the desert heat. …

Time Magazine named it one of the World’s Greatest Places to Visit in 2019, citing the integration of “immersive video screens and dioramas” into Jean Nouvel’s architectural design.

The museum is great. The space is open at night too. And that’s free.
