DOHA, Jan 23 (KUNA) -- Under aegis of Qatari Amir Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani the Islamic Art Museum will be opened on November 22, acting executive chairman of the Qatar Museum Authority (QMA) Abdullah Al-Najjar said here Wednesday.

The project place Qatar in the forefront of cultural activities and turn Doha into capital of Middle East culture and minaret of world arts, he pointed out.
The museum is a wonderful architectural work of art on an area of 35,500 square meters on an artificial island 60 meters away from Doha beach, he noted.
It consists of five-storey building and a two-storey educational suite and a yard between them.
The exhibits were gathered from three continents and date back to the seventh century, Al-Najjar disclosed.
