The National Museum in Qatar

The National Museum in Qatar, which opened its doors in the Doha capital and which was created by the French architect Jean Nouvel, holds the largest exhibition on the 8,000-square-foot planet and cost 434 million dollars according to the Le Journal du dimanche.

The latest in a series of large Persian Gulf museums, it was due to be completed in 2016, a year before the old Doha administration allies, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, economic and diplomatic isolation. More specifically, Qatar is accused of not being sufficiently distancing Iran, a Shiite regional power rival to Saudi Arabia, and supporting radical Islamist groups, which the Doha administration denies.

Designed futuristic, sand-shaped rose-sand (crystal formations and sand-specific sand), the museum hosted an inaugural ceremony led by the Emir of Qatar in the vast inner yard, sheik Tamim ben Hamad Al-Thani.The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, spoke in the opening.His Kuwaiti counterpart, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, and French Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, joined him.

The event was attended by top celebrities Naomi Campbell, fashion designer Victoria Beckham and José Mourinho football coach as well as politicians such as former French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni and French prime minister Edouard Philippe.The inauguration took place in the presence of celebrities and politicians.Actors Johnny Depp, Luke Evans, Zoe Saldana, singer and fashion designer Victoria Beckham attended the opening ceremony. Also, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni attended the event.

The museum – chaired by Mayor Al-Thani, Emir’s sister – celebrates the country’s bedouin past, the oil and gas-influenced present, but its immense wealth as well as the emir’s desire to differentiate itself from neighbors in the eyes of the international community.

For Jean Nouvel, who also designed the monumental Louvre Museum in Abu Dhabi, inaugurated in 2017, the Doha institution can become “a tourist destination” and a “symbol”.

Laureate of the prestigious Pritzker Prize – the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in Architecture – was accused of working for non-democratic countries. “I’ve been working for centuries or centuries for people, not for a person at a certain moment in power,” he said.

The 52,000-square-foot museum, which at the entrance is decorated with 114 fountains carved at a distance of 900 meters and has galleries with exhibits with a length of 1.5 kilometers, joins other famous buildings from Doha, such as the National Library and the Islamic Art Museum.
